On a South Carolina beach, professional photographer and editor Tony Sweet discovers a red cedar log and photographs the knurly wood patterns. In this video, you will learn how to photograph graphic wood textures, how to design your composition, and why it’s best to make a number of different images.

Tony takes you into the editing suite and uses Silver Efex software, which converts his image selections to black and white. You will learn how to adjust for contrast, exposure, and sharpness. You will also learn how to use color filters for added effects, and how retouching works. Black and white conversion – it’s all about the details.
