Photography today in this digital age has so much new amazing software to create fine art photography. I know it’s not for everybody but is starting to explode in the fast lane. Everyone is a photographer today with the smart phones capturing and posting millions of pictures everywhere. So you need a new niche to stand above the rest.

I love the  Topaz Complete Collection   they  offer a whole suite of 17 amazing products to transform your photography into something beyond your wildest imagination. Free trials

Topaz labs products are super fast. This is a whole different ballgame. You have to think out of the box when making a new art form from your beautiful photograph that looks great just as you took it. Now take that photograph and run it through any of these programs and what what happens. It is mind blowing what you can wind up with.

Making abstract photos is starting to become my favorite creation. You take an ordinary photo and keep running it through the software using different presets and then adjusting them. The big problem is when to stop and say ok that’s a winner.  When I first started making fine art photography I was like calling my artist wife in to look what I was creating on my new iMac 27″.  She was like wow that’s cool and on and on. She has been using a lot more of my creations to paint her own versions in Pastel.

Topaz photoFXlab does it all for only $79 bucks! It is a standalone software program and makes a great tool for an artist or photographer on a budget  to create and bring ideas to life.

I have made a bunch of new photos using most of the   Topaz Complete Collection software and again Rate it at a 10 out of 10,  check out my creations  I am still learning and playing so be nice.

These four products below are my favorite for creating fine art photography and if you click on them you get a 30 day  free trial.

Again Topaz Labs has 17 amazing products most of the others fix, repair, denoise,adjust, and make your photos the best they could ever be. The ones below are best for making fine art photography.

I have been playing with Topaz Glow  Simply choose an effect from the included categories or branch out and create your own, unique look. Whether you choose radical luminance or a delicate luster, Glow 2 offers millions of ways to customize your effect. You can turn one photo into hundreds of different photos.

“Many photographers look for new ways to express their artistic ideas. Glow takes this to another level. Most of all  it has so many new and unique presets. I’m having a blast creating amazing looks for my images.”
