How to Improve Your Travel Photography
I love to travel, and I love photography. So combining the two is an obvious match made in heaven! Most of my travel editing is easy; maybe a preset, a little correction here and there, and that’s about it. But there are usually a few photos that are particularly challenging, for whatever reason. In this article, I’ll explore three photos from my recent trip to India that needed the kind of help that DxO PhotoLab 2 is so perfectly tailored for.
The Hazy Photo
Extreme pollution in India is an unfortunate reality. When you combine that with the dry dust kicked up by 50 million people (yes, really) attending the Kumbh Mela, visibility is horribly affected. Unfortunately this means any photo that stretches into the distance is going to be severely affected by this, as in this photo taken with a long lens looking past hundreds of tents into the distance. Here’s what the original looks like:
As you can plainly see, the horizon is barely visible due to the pollution and dust. But with a quick application of DxO ClearView Plus, this image can be made to look like it was shot on a much, much clearer day! (post continued on DxO's Blog; link below…)
