Shot Notes

This was taken in the Bahariya Desert in Western Egypt. Although I have spent the last three years using Photoshop to flatter the subjects of studio images some shots are beyond even my ability to make look pretty. The main problem with this image was where the sun had caught the white fur and blown the highlights. Fortunately I had a RAW copy of this image so I could get back most of the detail using the recovery slider in Camera RAW. This would not be possible if you shot in jpegs as you cannot change the exposure after you shot.

    True. They may not be pretty but they have bags of character.

    This shot was taken a moment earlier.
