Colour (Two Photographs)

In stark contrast to yesterday’s post this one is about color. Camera and processing can alter and affect colors creatively, most of the time people focus on the saturation and vibrance settings in camera and in post. Film styles are another way cameras address color. Most processing programs enable changes to the hue, saturation, luminance of colors as wells as white balance and overall tint. Not an insignificant number of variables and one reason auto correct settings are so popular and getting better all the time.Two points I would make about playing with these variablesis you have to start with reasonably good color, and pay attention to the blues and yellows as they affect everything. A bonus tip is that lowering highlights improves clouds, though it is surprisingly easy to go too far. It’s wonderful when you come across scenes like this shot where nature does most of the work.
