or each example, we set out the original image and data on its exposure conditions. We then feature the final image and describe the succession of Nik filters Martin employed. What we cannot do is record for you every stroke that he made with his Wacom pen, however, he emphasised to us that using the Wacom Tablet in conjunction with the Nik filters has pushed him back to his painter's roots, building layer upon layer of effects, in sympathy with his vision of the final image.
Having watched him work his images we can report that he is massively enthused by both the Wacom/Nik 'system' and output via the Epson 3800 (to Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Bright White) - dogs and tails spring to mind!
