Unleashed Edit: Cesar's Hilltop Howl

View All Edits

This shot was taken during an intense golden sunset, but the RAW file lacks any of that colour and feeling and looks flat and cool.

In this edit, Craig will bring the life and colour back into the image, and walk you through his process for editing any elements that distract from the focal point of the image; Cesar howling.

The result is a warm emotive portrait that really enhances the vibe of the shot.
