I like to take pictures, but I don't like the colors when then sun isn't shining.
Ha! I hardly ever take photos on sunny days. I don't like the shadows.
You could always change the color temperature of your photos in a program like photoshop or, if your camera allows, you can change the white blanace setting to change your color temperature.
Er.... you took pictures of where the sun don't shine?
I've never gotten the hang of color balance.
I meant "color temperature."
Everytime I try to adjust for one thing, I end up not liking the way it changes the colors of skintones.
Unless they are distant shot, use flash on those days and you should be very pleased with the results.
I love taking pictures; I just wish I could find the time.
I bought a lens for my camera that has an image stabilizer. I took some great shots at Fenway a few weeks ago that I really enjoy. Here's one:
Is that a baseball diamond in the foreground?
Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. They stomped the A's 12-2 in that game.
That's a very nice picture.
It looks really dark on this screen...but very clear on others.
Ive been taking lots of black and whites with my new Canon. Ive also loaded my camera lenses with really goofy filter combinations (Digital cameras give you instant results so if you load two "Unfriendly filters" like 2 deep reds over a UV filter, you can get some neat skies behind your subjects (as long as there are clouds for contrast)
Also, using colors that match your subjects can make them "pop".
Im beginning to explore the breadth of black and whites capabilities and without being burdened by the time wait that film required is very cool.
Go into your color balance functions in your camera and screw around with B&W for a while. It can be very addictive, and if you dont like all the results, just crash em.
I went out and bought one of those electronic frames that scrolls through my flash card so I can study and replan some of my pics even before having my secretary do some photoshop features that I ask for. (IM not learning photoshop when I have someone who is good at it and I stand over her and together, we explore the tricks.
Like with the B&W, Ive been playing with adding just one or two hunks of colr that are compliments of each other and with pacement of the color areas, we can get some neat results also.
