Did you miss yesterday’s live airing of The Grid? If you are or know someone who is just starting out in photography and are looking for gear recommendations, RC Concepcion and Matt Kloskowski have you covered. They cover everything from cameras and lenses to small flash to tripods to printers and more! They kick things off with a discussion on the latest announcement about the Nik Collection by Google and the new pricing, then head into advice for beginners. Check it out right here.

50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro
Speaking of the Nik Collection, Rick Sammon just released his latest app, 50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro! In this app, Rick takes you through every single filter in Color Efex Pro to show you before and after examples so you can see how this plug-in can take your photography to a whole new level. Not only that, but he also gives you photography tips that will help improve your shooting! The app is on sale for just $.99 through May 1, and after that it jumps to $1.99 (still less than a cup of coffee). Get all the details about the app from Rick right here.
