World-renowned travel and landscape photographer Elia Locardi has teamed up with Skylum Global to bring you a creative editing challenge, editing Elia's images.
Skylum's #creativeeditingchallenge invites you to show them your editing skills and win amazing prizes, which include Photographing the World with Elia Locardi by your very own Fstoppers, a Fujifilm X100V digital camera, 500px Pro Membership, ViewBug Pro Membership, a MindShift BackLight backpack, a Lumecube panel, and a Luminar AI 2 seat license.
Luminar AI is Skylum's newest software powered by artificial intelligence, and it makes editing simpler and faster and provides great results in a fraction of the time. If you're a newbie to editing or a seasoned professional, there's something in this AI feature-packed software for you, so it's definitely worth giving it a go. Replacing skies couldn't be easier with Sky AI. Combined with Elia's high-resolution skies and images, your creative editing prowess will shine through.
It's not very often you'll get the chance to edit a world-renowned photographer's images, so if you think you've got the skills to take up Elia's challenge entering couldn't be simpler. Head over to Skylum's website here, where you can download his images and skies. Edit the images in your own creative style using the free seven-day trial of Luminar AI and then share your edits on Instagram.
''It's an Instagram challenge,'' Skylum told Fstoppers. ''So, all entrants should publish their works by adding #creativeeditingchallenge.'' Also, remember to follow and tag both @elialocardi and @skylum_global with your entries and check out the hashtag #creativeeditingchallenge to see other entries and gather inspiration for your own creative edits. You never know, you might just get that first place prize.
The competition winner will be announced on the 30th of April.
Good luck and get creating.
Luminar is the cancer of photography. Learning how to do sky replacements does not make you a great photographer. Does Luminar take into account the location of the photograph and direction? I have seen too many fake sky replacements that do not take direction or location into account and they look fake including ones that Elia has done. The best one so far was someone submitting a photograph in competition with a sky replacement of a European town at night. The idiot did not realize that southern and northern hemispheres have different stars in the sky and of course they used a southern hemisphere sky.
