Howdy folks,

If I could start fresh with ten thousand dollars to buy all of my photography gear from scratch, here’s how I’d do it.

Today I’ll start with software in the order I’d buy them.

  1. Photoshop CS4
  2. Photoshop Lightroom 2
  3. Corel Painter
  4. OnOne Plugin Suite
  5. Topaz Labs Plugin Suite
  6. Imagenomic Portraiture 2 (for lightroom)
  7. Alien Skin Exposure 2
  8. Photomatix HDR software

That’s it.  To stay under the 10 grand cap I’d have to lean heavily on academic versions of the software. My next post will be my gear wish list
