Time for week 4 of our RAW processing posts.
The feedback has been great, the images have been rolling in – thanks!! Been great to see you guys all get involved and playing along.
It’s time to look at some of the images received during the last week and then check out the RAW file we will be working on this coming week.
Here we… GO!
Remember, there is not right or wrong but rather just many different ways to process the same image. The exercise of processing an image, sharing it and then comparing them to others versions of that image is purely aimed at sharing, learning and having a bit of fun. Even if you are brand new to Lightroom and post processing images you are welcome to join and play along. If you get stuck – just shout and we will help where we can!
So, as always here is a gallery of all the images received during the week so you can take your time and check out what everybody did with the processing challenge.[gdl_gallery title=”rawedit3″ width=”75″ height=”75″ ]
Right, now that you have checked out all the images from last week and the comments on them in the video time to get stuck in to the new RAW file.
In case you missed the first few weeks, check out the details in the first video but here are the simple steps to follow to download and get going on this week’s image.[list type=”bullet”]
- Download the ZIP file below
- Unzip and import the RAW file into Lightroom
- Do all your adjustments to the file and process the image as you see fit – following the ‘rules’ below.
- Save file to size of 800px at longest side at 72dpi (shown in video)
- E-mail your image, as a JPEG, to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Watch next week’s episode to see what people did with the edit
So with all that out of the way, here goes with this week’s RAW file challenge.
This week we will be looking at a RAW file sent in by Adam Kotze.
Adam sent in this RAW file that he took a while ago asking whether we can have a look at it. Absolutely!
So your challenge for this week is – process Adam’s image however you see fit.
Crop it, change it, make it black and white – do whatever you think is necessary to bring the best out of this RAW file. Next week I will then have a look at processing this image, along with two other RAW files that were sent in, and we can compare notes from there.
So, the only rule this week is that you are allowed to you Lightroom or Camera RAW only! Anything you can do with either of these programs is allowed – just no Photoshop or external plugins.
If you have a RAW file you would like to share and for us to have a look at email it to email@example.com and it could be featured in future videos.
Oh, just in case you want to check out the previous weeks and how this works here are the links:[list type=”bullet”]
