Do you want to know the best techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop to optimize your wildlife photos before you submit to a contest?

In this video tutorial, I will share with you my experience (as a contest participant and later as a judge) in post-processing I have learned over the years , which enabled me to invoke emotions in viewers and win numerous international awards, including the grand prize of the prestigious Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International (among 25,000 entries from 55 countries), top prize in North America Nature Photographer Association Showcase Contest (NANPA Top 10 and Expressions magazine cover), several highly honored awards in Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice International in bird, polar wildlife and animal antics categories, featured in two covers of Nature's Best Photography magazine and chosen as the 2016 June cover of the Alaska Magazine, among other recognition.


“At first, I thought this video is irrelevant from me because I didn’t plan to enter any photo contests. But the video allows me to look at photos through the eyes of a contest judge, which helps me pick the great photos from the good ones. And it gave me better ways to sharpen and to reduce noise using Nik and adjustment layers. I already have recommended it to people who want to get the most out of post-processing.”

“Not only did I learn great techniques on sharpening and denoising, the part of how to see, and the work with shadow and highlight alone is worth it.”

Many of the books on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are far too complicated and take too long to read. I believe in the 80-20 rule, where, with a few easy steps, laymen can achieve good image quality and win photo contests. In this video, I will go through my step-by-step process of editing photos, from initial edits all the way through to submitting to photo contests or posting on social media. I will talk about the story behind the photo, why I chose such a composition, the critical mistakes one makes when they submit to photo contests, and how I deal with color, ultimate sharpening, highlight, shadows, and noise removal.

Included in this purchase:

1. Seven high-def 1080p Videos, 3 hours 18 minutes total (streaming and download, no DVD),

2. PDF of the class notes including links,

3. PDF of 5 Elements of Wildlife Photography


I have seen many great photos from photographers which have great potential to win contest and move people if only they know a few tricks in Adobe Lightroom and photoshop to unleash the power hidden in their RAW photo files. My goal is that after this tutorial, you can edit your photo from start to finish within 15 minutes and the image will be ready for photo contest.
