I am very much looking forward to being a part of the upcoming Wild Shots Wildlife Photography Symposium in Cape Town on the 15th of November. Not only are there some great speakers and presentations at the actual event, but Gerry, Morkel and I will also be hosting a post processing for wildlife photographers the day after the event (16 November).
The title of my presentation is “A touch too much? – post-processing for natural enhancement” and, in preparing for the event, I thought it would be interesting to get ideas on what you feel is too much?
For me, this image is just way too much but perhaps you like it.
Whilst there are general rules and guidelines in photography, we know that the rules are always meant to be broken. What one person feels is acceptable might be completely unacceptable to another though and it is this personal taste which is what makes art and the art of photography such an interesting medium.
So, in your opinion, what would you consider “too much” in wildlife photography?
Is it over-sharpening, over saturation, HDR?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this…
