Sunset at Hearst Castle | San Simeon, CA

I love going back through old photos, viewing them with fresh eyes. I get to put current technology’s creative tools to work, and can turn a simple memory shot into something portfolio worthy…like this photograph taken in 2006 at Hearst Castle.

Sunset at the Hearst Castle Outdoor Pool | San Simeon, CA

Only 6.3 megapixels here?!?

I captured this image with my Canon Rebel (no extra letters or numbers there…the original Rebel) with a whopping 6.3 megapixel sensor. It was shot in JPG because, at the time, I didn’t know any better. Actually, I knew pretty much nothing about photography other than “ooh pretty thing” – point – click.

Adding POP with Intensify Pro

The unedited version of this photo was nice, but on the blah side. With the tools I have today I was able to enhance the detail shadow and give the colors a bit of pop, making this a lovely image to look at! I did minor adjustments in Lightroom, and then took the photo into Macphun’s Intensify ProIntensify did a great job of kicking up the detail and color BUT, because its a JPG, it brought out a ton of noise.

Enter Noiseless Pro

Noiseless practically eliminated the noise while retaining an amazing amount of detail with just a couple of clicks. This software rocks on JPGs & high-ISO images.

Macphun has a couple of great specials happening right now, so if you’ve been thinking about trying out their software, now would be a great time!
