The Wildlife Photography Conference is a KelbyOne production. It’s online and runs March 16 and 17th, 2021.

This will be a live, two-day, online conference where we show you how to choose essential gear, get noticed on social media, compose better photos, use the best plug-ins and so much more.

Every few months I plan to give you a quick update on Topaz products. I have been using these products since January 2020, and I have come to rely on them for almost all of my post-processing needs once I get things organized and give each image a quick fix in Luminar 4.0. Then I move to Topaz for things like noise reduction, sharpening, enlarging, painting and more. 

Here is some exciting news.

Topaz Labs has released an update to Sharpen AI. This major update includes a new auto-detect masking tool to generate base masks. It can detect 20 different types of subjects, including people, cars, planes, and various animals. This feature can be accessed by clicking the “Masking” brush button to the right in the file list and then “Find Objects” in the left corner.
