Alien Skin Exposure 3 – Rockin’ some new filters!
Been a slow week for camera revciews but I have a Nikon D3100 and D7000 on the way, and a Panasonic GH2 soon so I will be reviewing those VERY VERY Soon! In the meantime…today I downloaded the demo for Alien Skin Exposure 3 and it seems REALLY fast with Photoshop CS5 which I also upgraded to.
I used to have Expousre 1 and 2 but gave it up when I started to use Nik Silver Efex Pro. Well, I NOW think Exposure 3 may just beat Silver Efex for B&W conversions! Not 100% yet but I am really digging the speed and the vintage presets AND you get B&W and COLOR film stocks, not just B&W. You can download the demo HERE if you want to try it out. Can be used with Photoshop or Lightroom 3. So, just for fun here are a few shots I converted to B&W and some with tweaked color using Alien Skin Exposure 3. Seems to be a fantastic filter set and I have only scratched the surface by using presets.
