Mono Color – It Sucks You In

Oh yeah, when the show is on at Mono, it’s on! You’ve gotta act quickly because it doesn’t last long. That color can’t be missed but often photographers get sucked into its warmth and focus nowhere else. And while the clouds and really make that an easy thing to do, I’m suggesting you go further, go past the obvious. (The obvious WB-Cloudy A6, Vivid, EV-2 1/15)

Yeap, back to those curves again. I want the viewer to feel in my click what I felt that morning on the bank of Mono Lake. Using that curve, we bring in that intimacy, we create visual depth and the tufas still pop in front of that great color. That last thing I want you to think that ever lakeshore or sunrise has to be photographed in this was to be successful, quite the contrary. I just want you to consider your options and keep in mind the viewer of your photograph when you make that click. Invite the viewer into your image, into your world, into your experience and you will start having more powerful images!
