Over Christmas I ventured back to the eastern half of our glorious states…
So that means that where I went was covered in ice, the annual tradition of Christmas on the east coast.
Lots of really bright “low sky” days there…
So one day I went out shooting to document the different types of trees in the area, in silhouette style.
So I intentionally overexposed the images to the black & white contrast. White balance was set to sunny.
So you might ask, …”but it wasn’t sunny, why did you do that!?!”
Because I’m stubborn.
Not really. Well I am, but that isn’t the reason.
I did it to keep the color temperature cool so I wouldn’t have to modify it in post…
Because I wanted a cool (color temp that is, not “cool” like Michael, Janet or Randy Jackson might be cool)… I wanted my images to be cool in color temp, not topical cool by societal standards.
Because we all know that color temperature is what really matters in life.
I’m not kidding.
