Winner

Mark Wild is a wedding photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Mark picked up a camera a few years ago. Since then, he’s never put it down. He is fascinated by how photos can create emotions in people. So he throws himself wholeheartedly into learning all he can about it. We connected with Mark to ask him about how he uses Exposure.

How did Exposure help create your winning shot?

I always take my work through Exposure. And I’ve done that for quite a while now. I want to use it as a standalone app, but I have always used it for finishing touches.

I prefer Exposure’s grain to Lightroom’s. A favourite thing of mine to do with Exposure is to add a preset (usually Kodak Gold or Portra) layer on top of the already edited file and then dial the opacity down. This is what I did with the winning shot using Portra 160 at 50% opacity. I used to do that in Photoshop, but now I can do it all from within Exposure. It adds a depth that’s hard to achieve with just Lightroom sliders! I always do my sharpening in Exposure, too! Always.
