While I’m working on a longish post detailing my processing I just wanted to ramble on a bit about my perception of Winter’s Colors.
While it’s true that I prefer black and white images in harsh sunlight, winter has always inspired me with it’s muted colours.
Some (most) might say that winter is the time for black and white. Spring and summer and mostly autumn are better suited to colour film, I tend to disagree!
This might just be a passing fad, but for the moment I firmly believe that winter is the the time for colour photography.
I don’t like garish colours, so I tend to shoot colour film in subdued mode. And that’s not only true for landscape.
I have always loved soft coloured photos. Certainly no HDR for me!
If you have your eyes well open these wintery days, you might notice that unless there’s great sunlight, the colours are simply a bit faded, washed out… not really there.
That’s the stuff I like.
Harsh sunlight is for black and white, soft light is for colour photography!
Sorry, just the way I like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
