Taken from Jon's If You're Just Joining Us podcast, where Jon interviewed Anthony about the process from being contacted by the editors at Night Shade Books, to creating sketches, to the final painting, many of the images and artists they discuss are shown in a slide show-style video.

    • RAW v JPG: the ULTIMATE showdown

      Actually, just a tutorial using Lightroom 2 and showing the differences between RAW and JPG. I show some techniques for making images look better than they did when they came out of the camera. I suggest viewing in fullscreen on this one. UPDATE: BLEAH. Smaller one looks better.

        This really is just a comparison of working on a RAW file versus a JPG file in Lightroom 2. Vimeo took a huge dump on my fuller sized video upload, so I'm trying this one.

          This is a review of Snapseed, the photo editing app for Mac. The review shows many of the controls and settings to create heavily filtered photographic looks. The beauty of the app is that it contains several unique interface controls and shows the effects and treatments in real time. For a $20 app, that's pretty cool.

              This is a relatively short tutorial showing how to turn a color RAW image into a grayscale and then toned image. Apologies for the weird audio on the low end. I think it's my cheapy headset.

                  This tutorial was finished back in May, 2011, but I forgot about it due to my gall bladder issues. The pesky gall bladder was removed in June and I just found this file. I had hoped to do a whole bunch more tutorials, but work got nutty and I did a bunch of video work for the mothership; dooce.com. Here's a link to the after image: http://blurbomat.com/2011/05/20/greater-new-orleans-bridge/
