I’m proud to announce that Simon Maxwell and I have finished the Second Edition of Simon’s e-book that used to be called Enfuse For Real Estate Photography and is now called Enfuse and Hand Blending In Photoshop For Real Estate Photography. We changed the name of the e-book slightly because Simon has added four chapters on the popular subject of hand blending in Photoshop. We thought that it makes sense to add material on hand blending techniques because in many ways it is related to the Enfuse technique.
Update: If you didn’t get a copy of the new edition and think you should have contact me via the green “Contact Larry” button on the upper right side of the blog rather than leaving a comment below.
Here are some important facts about the release of this new edition:
- The size of the book has gone from 144 pages to 259 pages. There are six new chapters.
- The price of the e-book has not changed.
- As with all PFRE e-books, everyone who has purchased this e-book in the past will get a free copy of the new edition. If you purchased the book in the past you should have already gotten an e-mail with a download link. They were sent out today (6/28). Note that as with all PFRE download links, they only last for 120 hours or 5 download tries.
- E-book update download links are sent to the e-mail addresses used to purchase the original Enfuse e-book.
- This new edition of the book is also included with Simon’s video series although the new material in the book has not yet been added to the video series. There is no commitment as to when the new material will be added to the video series although it is Simon’s intent to add the new material to the video series. Simon is a busy man, shooting interiors all over the UK and the EU.
To put Simon’s e-book in perspective: There are two primary techniques for shooting interiors one where you use flash gear to light interiors ( Scott Hargis’s e-book and videos) and the other approach is shooting multiple frames and combining them in post-processing (Simon Maxwell’s e-book and videos). Real estate photographers tend to prefer one or the other based on a variety of personal preferences. Based on past polls the split between PFRE readers that use the two approaches is very roughly 50/50.
