Andrew Beck All Authors, Andrew 8 Comments

The behind the frame series takes RAW wildlife images, works through the technical specifications of the image and then looks at how the image is edited in Lightroom.

In this episode Andrew analyses and edits an image of a Leopard photographed in the Okavango Delta of Botswana.

Very few people can tell you what their passion in life is. Even fewer will be able to tell you that what they do for a living is in fact their passion. My love for the bush and conservation took me on journey which would not only allow me to explore the continent which fascinates me so much, but to share my passion for photography and conservation with others.

    Love the combination of what you were thinking about when you took the image, the composition considerations and particularly the animal behaviour elements. It really added to the video.

    I also enjoyed the post processing elements of watching how you tackled that along with hearing your thoughts as to why you take a particular route.

    I often have difficulty in chosing one shot from another when looking a t a sequence of images taken in a burst so having you explain what makes a good animal behaviour shot in respect of its body position, was very informative. More please!

      Thanks so much Dave.

      Yes, choosing the right frame from a sequence can be challenging. Lightroom is great in that you can select a number of images for comparison and then display them all at the same time by hitting the “N” key. You can then remove those you don’t like from the selection leaving only your hero shot.

      More coming your way every Wednesday!

    Beautiful image, and I love the attention to detail ( raised foot and leading line) along with the subtlety of the development.
