A Little Experiment
Another walk in the woods revealed a large amount of berries. I like to get photos of them when still plump and fresh. Maybe it is all the rain and sun or perhaps a sign of an early winter. O-h-h! did I say that word? I am seeing signs of the changing seasons. One night it was only 9 degrees celsius, same as last May. Short summer. However I am going to enjoy my shorts and sandals as much as I can and search for the pretty blooms that we see at the end of summer. I used a technique that I have seen in other’s photos and asked myself, “How do they do that?” I asked a friend recently when he posted a goat with a brown eye in a black and white photo. One method is to go into Lightroom “Develop” module and where the colours are, desaturate them except for what you want. Well red berries can just beg for this treatment so I decided to play with this technique in this photo leaving red and some orange in as well. You can do this in Adobe Photoshop or Corel Paint Shop Pro-using masking but I am not sure how to do that. Any comments are welcome.
