White Pops Color

It’s real simple, white makes color pop! The way the mind’s eye works, it goes out to two colors, black and white and with those color sampled, it makes conclusions about other colors it sees at the same time. Ever noticed photos with deep shadows (blacks) make the color seem really vivid? You can have the same effect with colors in landscape photos using white. And this is the time of year when white is rather common in our landscape photos (snow). So if you’re thinking about visiting a locale with lots of reds, oranges, yellows and you want those colors to really pop (without using the digital darkroom) then visit them when there is snow on the ground.

Entertainment For Your Long Nights

I was looking up some trivia for a book I’m writing and the search engine took me to my own class on KelbyOne. Ya, it was a laugh out loud moment when I looked in my own class for my own answer! Now my first class on Landscape Photography was filmed way back in 2007, my section on a polarizer still holds true today. And while the lessons on the old Win box might use old software, the techniques and the reasons behind them are still valid. So during the long nights of winter fast approaching, here’s the offerings that might stir the imagination and get the juices flowing for the daylight hours.
