Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate presets and filters… and Infinite Color Panel is neither of those things.
Most presets are sold with a tagline like, “edit your photos just like me”, but the fact of the matter is: That’s false advertisement.
Photographer, creator, co-producer, and lover of peanut butter, SJ Van Zyl is someone you may have already heard of. If you haven’t, you’ve definitely seen his work! He has a way with his subjects, you can truly sense that they are relaxed and exude true emotion when you look at his images. I wanted to take a deep dive into how he’s able to do that and what his secrets are. In combination, he pairs it up perfectly with a great color palette and he graciously explores these topics with us! I learned a thing of two from him and can’t wait to apply it in my own work!
I’ve had the pleasure to see Kyle’s work evolve over the span of many years. What I admire about him is his incredible work ethic, and continuously producing work that inspires us to go out and explore more. He photos scenes in a way that feel very relatable and true to reality. It’s a part of what makes his work so appealing. Naturally, I’m too lazy to be an adventure photographer. I really wanted to know what goes into that world and how it’s like as a professional. I also wanted to know what goes into his post processing choices!
As I have watched Kevin Titus grow in his photographic journey over the years, I suspect that growth has come in spurts and stumbling lunges, a mixture of conscience grasps at new techniques and fumbles into successes. But his blending of wide angles and great welding of color makes each of his images brilliantly subtle and clean pieces of work which cause the pausing of scrolling fingers in appreciation. We recently sat down with Kevin to explore his process, his way of thinking, and his philosophy behind his art.
With his experience shooting personalities and celebrities in both studio and on location, we decided to talk to him about a few topics like photography education, his approach on working with clients, and his color grading process among others.
Melanie Kern-Favilla is the type of photographer you never forget. The way she captures the world around her makes you want to stay for a while and look longer. The colors she dresses them up with compliments the scene perfectly. Melanie is a member of our Infinite Color family and we love the way she captures her subjects!
We’ve watched the work of Tina Leu for a while now. Her portrait work has been really captivating. I recently found her work on the Sue Bryce group and got to recently meet her in person at the Portrait Masters conference. There is something magical about her work and the essence of it. What I love most about her work is that she photographs a wide range of genres and still manages to maintain her style. We wanted to sit down and learn more about her work and her thoughts on color!
Shavonne Wong is an incredible photographer and a human being. She’s always re-imagining her work in creative ways, and seeing her rise through the world of fashion is incredible. We’ve featured her before for her work on Top Model, but this time we have something truly unique and I think you’ll believe so too.
Being a self-taught photographer is a tough row to hoe, and Rutvik Katuri being of that ilk has brought the same perseverance to the table and mixed it his special brand of craft. Each of his images has a thoughtfulness of design playing throughout from conception, to color, and tone.
Anja Ekstrom is a photographer that I am also proud to call a friend. Accordingly, she posted this recent shoot in our Facebook group that I was in love with and coincidentally, she used our Infinite Color Panel as a part of her workflow! I had to feature the images and ask her what went into them.
Dae Howerton has worked his way with fashion and beauty photography like it’s going out of style. The balance of striking color and clean composition, is further bolstered by his cinematic approach to imagery. From influence to vision, Dae gave us (and now you!) access to a deeper into his process and to detail how his work comes together.
It’s important that we discuss just how Infinite Color Panel compares to color grading in the raw processing stage. Along the way, we’ll discover just how complimentary both are together, and how they also differ on their own.
We welcome one of our friends and community members, Michael Moon, to write about his experience photographing the NFL. Based in Houston, I love his work and have always been curious into what goes into it. It’s also great seeing how color grading plays a role in it.

Here’s an advanced review and tutorial of Infinite Color Panel that combines other advanced Photoshop tools with creative uses of the panel. Everything from the color range function in changing skin tones, to modifying selected colors in a scene. This is incredible.
After releasing Infinite Color Panel, Mezame began using it and I honestly wasn’t sure what he’d think of it. He started sharing his work with the color panel in our Facebook group and I had to reach out and ask him what his thoughts were after using it for a couple of months!
Lillian Liu is a Fine Art Photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. Although she first picked up a camera at the age of 16, Lillian didn't properly find her passion until 4 years ago. And boy, does this passion shine through her work! We had the pleasure to sit down with Lillian and chat about the inspiration behind her work, her creative process and color management.

Akwesi Baah is a commercial, food, beverage and product photographer based in Ghana.
His attention to detail and understanding of harmonising colors has recently caught our eye and we had the pleasure to (virtually) sit down for an interview with him this week!
These images posted below were all treated with a little love from our Infinite Color panel!
Writer and Photoshop expert Gilmar Smith of Photoshop User Magazine kindly took a test drive of our Infinite Color Panel and put her thoughts down to paper. I was pleasantly surprised with what she found!
Imagery is a piece of art, created through the medium of photography and serves a much more deliberate purpose than a picture, which is but a capture. For Umbar her conscious color choice plays a big role in making that transformation from a pic to an image.
Scott English Milam captured beautiful, honest moments, telling stories of love that have a bigger impact than just a pretty picture.
