Photography 101: A Primer on Color Photography, Part II

A quick lesson for me

The Daily Post

Yesterday, Ming Gullo, the photographer at A View with Ming, introduced the basics of color photography. Today, she continues her discussion and talks about hue, saturation, lightness, and contrast.

Good morning from a cool but sunny Hastings.  Hopefully the stormy weather is over and warmer weather comes back.

Yesterday was a strange day with showers on and off all day.  It was odd hanging out my washing with drops of rain falling.  I got it dry though.  So I didn’t get to go for a walk but I got out around the garden for a few photos.  This one is my favourite.

Just as I turned around I noticed this sparrow on the clothes line so only just managed to get this photo before it flew off.

I love the way the trellis frames these flowers – daisy or margaritas – someone please tell me if I am wrong.

These are just about past their best now but I loved the way they were so close together.

The grapes are starting to grow.  I have taken lots of photos just of the leaves as there is so much texture in them.

These astroemerias are just lovely.  I had to google for the spelling of these.  I thought at the beginning that these were lilies but now know that they are not.  No I am not going to spell it again.  They are really coming into their own.

Socrates - friendship

 

This is what I did last night with these flowers for my Words of Inspiration blog.  These flowers represent friendship, commitment and care for one another so I chose a quote from Socrates which I felt went with the meaning.  The font is Herculanum – an ancient latin font perfect for Socrates.

So you don’t have to go far for some good photos.

Cheers and have a nice day.
