I traveled pretty far to get this shot:
Shot while on safari in Serengeti National Park, I could tell you some dramatic tail (see what I did there?) of how we snuck up on this guy, but it would be a lie. We drove as near as we could get while still staying on the road and then I took this photo, he didn’t even stir. When I went to edit this photo this week, I wanted to express a dream-like feel in the image. I started with a crop, but made sure to keep the little lizard in the frame. It’s a small, easy to miss detail, but I liked it. One of the edits I did was to add a LUT called Beijing to this photo. It is basically a pre-set series of edits, and it helped create this look:
LUTs are something I don’t know a whole lot about, so in the future I will be researching them a bit more. First I might take a nap though…
Your thoughts on the photo and its edit are welcome below.
