What is Capture One RAW Editing Challenge?
Capture One Challenge is RAW editing contest where you can show your Capture One skills and win awesome prizes!
Each month I start a new Capture One RAW Editing Challenge. Basically, there will be 12 contests in 2019 with different RAW images and various prizes. And you can take part in all of them!
During this year, we have held already six Capture One Challenges! Time to update the contest a bit, what do you think?
Previously, there were no strict requirements for editing; you were able to adjust images any way you wanted to. Now, I'm going to try the opposite approach.
Over the next few Challenges, I'll pick contest images with some particular issues, and your task will be to solve them in Capture One.
So, here is the first contest in a new format - the July Challenge!
In July, we're working with oceanarium photographs. That's a tough subject to edit!
Here are two Fuji images for the contest:
Your goal is to remove color cast, restore colors, and adjust exposure to make images look as natural as possible.
Feel free to edit and upload both images or only some of them; it's entirely up to you.
July Challenge Prizes
In July Challenge we'll have two winners:
1. Winner of my choice
I'll pick one winning image with the best editing from all the uploaded images.
2. Winner of open voting
The open voting begins on July 25; thus, you'll have a week for editing and a week for voting.
Each of the winners will get a complete Film and Portrait Styles Bundle (worth $134.18).
Regarding everything else, the contest is the same:
1. Download RAW files and edit them solely in Capture One.
Feel free to apply any editing, but don't forget, that you can edit images in Capture One only and winners provide EIP files of the edits, so I can share them with all of you!
Learn more on how to create EIP files in Capture One.
To download images enter your email below and you'll receive a link to the RAW files.
2. Upload edited images here.
File format: JPG
File scale: 1200 px long edge
File size: 700 kb max
Color profile: sRGB
Your image will be published as soon as it would pass moderation; we'll notify you of this.
3. The deadline is July 24.
On the 1st of August, I'll announce the winners!
What about Sony RAW?
For the next few Challenges, we'll have only one file format for the contest. Sometimes it's going to be Fuji, sometimes Sony RAW and in one of the next challenges, you'll even see a Nikon RAW.
