Photography Archive Invasion Project – Week Nine

This was taken at African Lion Safari in 2013. The original image had very washed colours and a light sky, but I liked the reflection in the water. I colour corrected the trees and sky and made a mirror for the reflection in the water.

 

This project allows me to take a mediocre image (at best) from my archive and try to edit it so it looks good. I plan on doing one image a week for now and see how things go. This project forces me to go through all of those old images in my archive and sharpens my editing skills.

I have tried to come up with an original personal project for some time now and believe this is the one for me. If you are a photographer reading this hopefully it inspires you to attempt an original personal project of your own.

Here is the criteria I am using for this project:

  1. The original image must not be from a client shoot
  2. The image must look ok, not great
  3. I only get 10 minutes to edit the image (In one program only)
