Bundespreissieger Berufsfotografie 2023

Federel Award Winner

Prof. Photographer 2023



PRESENCE COURSE from September 2023

The most important first step in wildlife and animal photography is to make the image in RAW. This file is not yet compressed and still contains all the information as it comes out of the sensor. This RAW image must now be "developed" on the computer by the respective photographer. I deliberately call it image development and not image processing. The RAW image is the negative of today's digital age and must first be developed by the photographer.  

You can call it what you like, image development or image processing. In photography, it is one of the most difficult processes on the way to the finished image.

You don't always find the ideal conditions for photography, which makes the whole process even more difficult. This presents every photographer with sometimes difficult challenges in editing and finishing the images.
In this workshop you will learn how to get the most out of your images without losing their naturalness.

It is all a very delicate process, where you have to approach the images with a lot of sensitivity and should also know about the most important tools and their handling in Adobe Lightroom.
Many RAW images have a huge potential to become a beautiful, impressive final image. However, it may never come to full fruition, as usually only a fraction of the countless possibilities are exploited.

Image development is the last link in the chain to the finished image
It ultimately decides how it affects the viewer
