Use colour to change summer into autumn
COLOURS ARE AN intrinsic part of our daily lives, and they dominate our world. In photography, they are one of the most important tools you have to connect with your viewers. However, cameras don’t always capture the vista as we see it. RAW files retain basic data about the scene, but it’s up to you to bring that information out as you want to show it. Similarly, JPEGS, which don’t capture the same level of detail, look a lot more vibrant out of camera. However, a JPEG is an image file which has been edited by your camera, so it’s still not guaranteed to show the viewer that epic scene you want to convey.
Take control of colour
We’ve already learned how powerful Affinity can be, but it’s the small things that can make the biggest difference. Everyday tools, such as Colour Balance and Selective Colour, can be used to make subtle tweaks, or even to completely change the look and mood of your scene, as we’ll find out now.
