Toehold Develop – The Post-processing Weekly Contest: Oct 1 – 6, 2018
If you didn’t notice yet, you can mouse-over the image above and look at the “Before” and “After” version. So here’s a new, fun photography contest!
The Toehold Post-processing Contest is here to test your processing skills. Every week, we present you with a Raw image shot by one of our ace photographers so that you can show your processing skills by participating, sharing your views and learning from our Mentors at the end of it all.
Let us begin with this image of a leopard photographed in Kabini by Jayanth Sharma.
It was a foggy morning in 2012 and I was testing the new D4 back then. A lot of haze and back light during the sighting and I used Lightroom to process it and improve it’s contrast and richness,” says Jayanth.
We have shared with you a Raw file very similar to the photograph in question. For obvious reasons, it is not the exact same photo bearing Jayanth’s copyright watermark, but is from the same series of the leopard images he made in Kabini. And the photographer has agreed to part with the .NEF Raw file for you to use and show your processing skills.
