Hiding behind the 'vintage look'
Yes, I usually love that vintage look in photographs.
All the warm tones, the imperfections, the worn and well loved feel.
I also love the bright vibrant colors of a 'normal' photo though.
Colors that are true to the actual image.
I have a problem with white balance.
Recently I have learned how to understand it much better.
It's really pretty easy,
maybe some day (when I'm more comfortable with it) I'll go more in depth, on the 'how to'.
Anyway, despite, the fact that I have taken the time to learn and understand it better,
and despite the fact that it's really pretty easy to get it set correctly in your camera,
for whatever reason, I don't do it.
I don't take the 30 seconds to set my camera to the correct white balance, and so I feel like my colors are always off.
So what do I do?
Usually I love how they look,
but I got to be honest,
I'm a little sick of making ALL my photos look that way.
I wanted to make one of my photos, look clean fresh and bright,
but I couldn't do it!
That's when I realized I was using the old time look to hide all my imperfections.
Anyway, in May I'm not going to do ANY vintage photos for the entire month!
YIKES! hopefully it will challenge me to get a little better.
Wish me luck!
Have I been slacking on the recipie front or what?
Who thinks it's high time I post a new one?
