Street photography can often lend itself well to a high-contrast black-and-white, especially when the sun is low, creating lots of dramatic shadows and epic highlights.

Nik Silver Efex was used to take this clean and crisp image and give it the texture of a classic film grain before deepening the shadows to make the most of the composition.

Finally, a border was added to give the impression that this street scene is coming to you straight from the darkroom.

Low light

Shooting in low light can often mean a choice — noisy photos or multiple exposures. Nik Collection has you covered for both.

Nik Dfine eliminates noise, and with intelligent local adjustments, you can target the noise reduction exactly where it’s needed.

With Nik HDR Efex, you can effortlessly blend multiple exposures to create a perfectly balanced image with stunning dynamic range.

Still life

Creating a shallow depth of field can be a great way to remove distractions or direct the viewer’s gaze. In this image, Nik Perspective was used to place emphasis on the grapes at the front of the photograph, making space for text and other graphics ahead of its inclusion in a magazine.

The final step was to prepare it for printing. The photo was given some extra crispness with Nik Sharpener, targeting only the in-focus parts of the image thanks to the plug-in’s U Point™ technology. There’s a touch more detail in the sliced fig, making it leap off the page.

Architecture is often a study of geometry and light, which is where precision comes into play. Nik Color Efex and Nik Silver Efex are great for achieving gorgeous tones, but what about the geometry?

Nik Perspective gets you the perfect perspective, getting rid of collapsing verticals in a single click — and so much more. You can even tweak tiny elements to line things up for absolute geometric satisfaction.
