Once upon a time... I'm thrilled to announce that I am now a "DFXpert" for Tiffen photo/movie company.
So, what does that mean exactly? Well, Tiffen® has been a leading manufacturer and supplier of photographic filters and lens accessories for the consumer/professional imaging and the motion picture and broadcast television industries for over 70 years.
Whilst their heavy duty professional photo and movie accessories and equipment are the renowned in the industry, their photo and video processing software is actually one of photography's best kept secrets.
I use their software - Tiffen DFX - as key part of my workflow; and hopefully the results speak for themselves. It's really one of the most intuitive, flexible, simple, yet insanely powerful pieces of photo (and video) processing software available on the market, emulating over 2000 effects and filters. Although I shouldn't give all my secrets away, Tiffen DFX is very definitely part of my "secret sauce".
Anyway - what it really means is that now I can offer you, my good readers, a discount on the Tiffen software range (excluding bundles, which are already discounted).
The DFX products come as standalone, as a single plug-in and as a video/film plugin for producing a vast range of still and moving image filtering effects (everything from film simulation, to lighting adjustment, to glows, textures, you name it).
The DFT products are suite of individual products that focus on particular processing and effects types, such as film stock emulation, masking, lighting, matte-ing, light rays, object isolation, chroma-keying - many of which work with both still and moving images.
