Elephants are frequently our photo subjects while on safari. Their size, shape, intelligence, and trunk are just a few things that make them great subjects and very interesting. There are many opportunities for unique, beautiful, and descriptive images of elephants.
Adobe has released a new version of Lightroom CC which contains a new adjustment tool: The DeHaze slider. It is found in the FX menu of the Development module (way down toward the bottom of the list). I see how it works on a safari photo
A South Africa photo safari will be full of opportunities to photograph animals at close distances. These images have all the details and interesting poses found in modern (human) portraits. You can apply current portrait processing techniques to your wildlife portraits.
Adding contrast to an image is a great way to boost the impact of the image, especially African images shot in full sun and those where the animal is camouflaged.
Digital photography and its post processing tools offer so many creative possibilities for making a final presentation of our RAW files. Here I demonstrate the same photo presented 3 different ways mostly using Adobe Lightroom / Camera Raw and a little bit of Photoshop.
Taking a Good Photo to the Next Level using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop using curves and color correction to make the image even better.
This tutorial explains how to use the Tone Curve tool in Adobe’s Lightroom 4 to adjust the contrast in an image and use the channel curves to further correct tone and color.
The morning light on this nyala is a nice touch, but the image could use a bit more contrast and the warm light is making all the colors in the image a bit off. The White Balance tool in Lightroom will help, but using a few more advanced tools will really make this image look great.
I discuss how to use the Split Toning tool to boost the color of a image which seems a bit flat.
In this tutorial I show you how to correct “red eye” in wildlife image and then enhance the eyes to be more intense.
