Hm okay. So that just means frame the shot better and put more thought into what is behind the the subject, other than "vague greenery"?

FWIW I love 1) hiking and 2) the wildflowers I see on hikes (although this pic is from a mid-bloom variety in my front "yard"), so I plan on taking pictures of random flowers as one of my more frequent ventures.

Nudging the white balance to the warmer side? What exactly do you mean lol

Pretend you're talking to a moron.

edit: scratch that. You're talking to a moron

Blue = Colder

Yellow = Warmer

So, in lightroom you there's that slider call Temp. It makes the photo pretty much just bluer or more yellow. People call the blue side the cool side and yellow the warm side. They are mostly used to adjust white balance and make the colors truer, but I use them more to try to invoke a specific reaction out of the viewer.

Here's a half-ass snapshop I have of a dandelion.



Gotta love that ISO800 film grain! Right! Right?...


Anyway, I pushed a lot of yellows out of the colors to make you feel like it was a warm, dusky day. Sort of a "lying in the grass" perspective. I'm one of those touchy-feely idiots that prefer photos that feel like they have narrative.

I wish I got closer to it, the eye isn't naturally drawn to the dandelion until you follow the light.

I'm working with a couple local racing leagues, I'm going to start a blog about some of the local car scene. I'm looking for a name for it. The whole theme is that it's going to be DIY, local drivers with cars that are very about the purist aspect of driving. To couple that I'm going to use entirely and only film.

I'm thinking something with 'grassroots' in it has the feel. Or like "shutters and driveways."

Halp.

Getting back into paper negatives. Overexposed this one, but I should be able to save it with some pre-flashing...

Before I shot in fine (jpeg) and did my processing in Photos, the photo software Macs come with.

set your camera to RAW if you can. JPEGs, even fine, are lossy files with inferior colour rendering and a severe lack of data. With a RAW you can do a lot of post-processing.
