color me red

The camera has a difficult capturing the color red. pumping up the photo with saturation makes red bleed like blood. however, if red isn’t matching what your eye saw when shooting it, then the best way to make it come to life is to add warmth instead of saturation. 

ever notice that the camera can’t catch red?

red or hot pink flowers are difficult for the camera to ‘see’– sometimes the images come out muddy or look as though the red has been added in later…this Zinnia was a stunner, you’ll have to take my word since you can’t see it. 🙂
