what happens when you turn the color up

up the color to see the mineral deposits

this is slate i found on a walk in the country. to the naked eye, it looked mostly grey & black. i saw some color in it when i photographed it. When i saturated it at home? BAM! you can see all the mineral deposits it contained. Amazing, no?

      Hi Michael, Yes, i’ve since learned to pop up color on rocks that appear grey, when the saturation is increased, the mineral (& only God know’s what else) deposits come to light. AWESOME. ~amy
