Photography/ “Prayer” December 2016©AmyRose
This “experiment” inadvertently happened. Upon my first shot in this series on my photo shoot last Saturday, my image I captured was blue. I stood there in absolute shock, not knowing what in the heck turned my image blue. I looked at my camera. Was it broken? No. Was it the filters I had on? No, that wasn’t it either. What in the _____?
I began to check my settings. Low and behold I had my WB on Tungsten because the night previous I was taking some test shots of my kitchen. I had totally forgotten I had changed my WB. Almost deleting the blue image, I said, “No, wait a minute. Let me see what I can do.”
So, began my experiment. The two images above are of the exact same area of Blossom Falls but the first one is taken with a WB of Tungsten and the second one is taken with a WB of cloudy. No digital art was applied to the first image. Yes this is actually how it looked when I saw it not only on my LCD panel, but in my editing room as well.
Amazing how only one small change can make this much difference. Hmmm …. That ought to make you think. I know it does me!!
In closing, I learned a huge Lesson that day. Yes even wind can and does effect a camera locked on a tripod while shooting long exposures. Almost every single frame I shot including this one was affected by the winds that were blowing that day. None of the waterfalls I took came out crystal clear as I am used to seeing. I having no control over Mother learned that day that when windy I will not be shooting long exposures. Those winds shook my camera which had a very heavy lens on it. Believe it or not!
Yet when I turned around in the opposite direction to shoot what was behind me, my camera did not shake. Ah, the wind while shooting waterfalls was hitting my lens right on and in turning the winds hit my back so I blocked them from hitting my lens. Now I have to know from which direction the wind is blowing from! All in the day of a life of a photographer …
