Our friend Glyn Dewis has been sharing his straightforward and very helpful post-production tutorials with us for a long time. This time he shares about how to add dramatic sun beams to your photos in post-production. Something I've been trying to master for a long time! Read below to learn more about how Glyn created this cool elephant image from a safari park snapshot.
According to Glyn Dewis:
Below you can see all the images that were combined to make the final picture.
I’d been looking for a suitable photograph of elephants to use in this picture having had the idea in my head for quite some time. I’d visited a Safari Park here in the UK but due to the weather the elephants there (Whipsnade) the elephants weren’t wandering in an area suitable due to the ground being so wet. I also made the mistake of going to a zoo here in the UK too which is something I will never do again; incredibly upsetting to see such beautiful animals clearly not being themselves and in enclosures way too small. It took me 2.5 hours to drive there and I must have been inside for no more than 15 minutes before I left!
