Welcome to Episode 071 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen: THE Post-Processing Landscape Photography Debate with Erin Babnik & Alex Nail! Get your popcorn ready - Erin and Alex deliver the goods and share their perspectives on the ever-prevalent debate on post-processing in landscape photography. I'd love to hear where you personally fall on the debate after listening.
Alex Nail is a full-time landscape photographer based in Bristol, UK with a passion for mountains and wilderness areas. He increasingly heads to remote or hard to reach locations in search of new images. His photography is largely illustrative, showing magical lighting conditions and spectacular scenery. Alex is a great believer in the trustworthiness of photography as an artistic medium. Alex edits his images; however, they are all real, with nothing added or taken away.
Erin Babnik is a full-time adventure landscape photographer, photography educator, writer, and speaker. She is known for her ambitious images, for her adventurous approach in the field, and for her thought-provoking writing and speaking. Her dedication to outdoor photography evolved out of her years working as an art historian, photographing at archaeological sites and in museums for the purposes of teaching and research. Erin draws upon her background in art history in bringing a deep knowledge of aesthetics, visual communication, and cultural relevancy to her own photographic work and to her ideas about the art of photography, which she expresses to audiences around the world.
