Major League Lacrosse Test Edit


We’ve identified two games from the 2016 season which should give us a good idea of your editing capabilities. Below you’ll find a link to download photos from two in-game edits, one shot under excellent conditions and one not so much. Please aim to deliver between 10 to 20 photos per edit. There will be two edits per game, but in this test edit you will only be doing one edit per game.

These images need to be edited in Lightroom, and then exported following the specifications outlined below. We want the images to “pop” with a nice amount of color and contrast so that the image is bright, sharp, and appealing. 

  • The images need to be cropped so that about 50% of the frame is focused on the player in possession of the ball. 
  • Please try to avoid images which feature empty stands in the background of the image, or crop them so they are less noticeable. 

If there are images from the download which you don’t believe are high quality enough to be passed on to the client, you may delete them at your discretion. The photos have already been culled by the photographer, so you may not need to delete any from these edits.

Please note what time you start and finish the edit (not including download or upload time)

You will find links to both downloads below

If you are not sure, keep the photo rather than delete it.

The idea here is not to retouch the images - just basic adjustments in Lightroom:

    • Similar brightness
    • Similar tone and white balance
    • Appropriate contrast and sharpening

Crop/Rotate: Please ensure the photos look professional and where possible crop out any unwanted background distractions, such as empty stands, etc.
