To make a very long story short, I keep finding myself annoyed with nature photography. I was very worked up a few days ago, when I became quite confident that the winner of a fairly large photo contest must have edited/doctored the photo... I then look at said persons website, and found some very blatant editing along with large amounts of shameless self-promotion as a truly expert photographer.
This really wasn't anything new, but I learned something from it: People can do whatever the heck they want, and I shouldn't care about it. If it bothers me, I can just focus on how I conduct myself and my photography! And with that said, I had the idea to reveal some of the work done on my own photos on my personal website.
Are you ready for a look at everything you may or may not already know about nature photography? I'll post the website version first, followed by the totally un-edited original.
Part 9: What’s the temperature of your colour?
Did you know that colour has a temperature? Did you know that our eyes adjust to the temperature differences easily and we rarely notice? Did you know you can really mess around with your nature pics by simply turning up (or down) the heat?
Time to look at my Canada Goose page for some examples:
Heebie jeebies. Here’s a classic example. As you increase the colour temperature of the pics, you increase the yellow/orange/red tones and you can suddenly make a simple sunset look CRAZY.
