Partial Colour

fade away

As promised some information how to get the above result of pale colours.

Once upon a time, long time ago, before the digital camera evolution, photographers had to know a bit of chemistry for their creative photo processing.
They had their own dark room to experiment, which was always an expensive tryout.
Photography is about light and also colour is about light think about the prisma.
A rainbow crystal is specially cut glass to let through some light to create them colours.
In a digital camera we now have many different option to play with the light, whit out the expenses of a dark room.

In most digital cameras and even smartphone cameras you have different processing options often found under “Picture Mode”.
In my camera “The Olympus Tough” only under the macro shooting setting there are many different picture mode options, in landscape shooting option there are none.
As you see it is not that easy as it seems, you need to search a bit, look in the manual.
Search for Picture Mode and look if you camera has the option/mode of Partial Colour.

Lucky you if your camera has this option as now it’s time to play.

With partial colour you play with the colour wheel and you choose which colour you want, all the other colours will be mono (black and white).
In the above photos; for one the colour green was chosen, the other the colour blue was chosen, with the same subject.
You see a clear difference, the little beetle has a shiny blue colour on her mainly black body which you can make more visible by choosing blue. You see the green fading away, green and blue are close to each other on the colour wheel, which makes it a bit harder to get the result you want.

You are painting with light using the colour wheel which painters use as well. Painters can do much more with colours, like mixing colours and creating their own specific colour according to their own secret recipe.
As photographer you can chose a particular Partial Colour setting and use this for a serie of photos.

In every camera and on every phone it will be different, but that is part of the creativity using your tools for your own expression.

it is possible

There was a lot of grrrrrrrrrr and more grrrrrrr as the camera had something else in mind than me. You can see that the focal point is the only bit which appears sharp in these colour palette, can be nice, if human and camera agrees on what should be that focal point.

Some more experimenting with the in camera setting to create pale colour photos. It is a bit of fiddling around, actually a lot of fiddling around.
How many of you would like to know how to do it? You most likely have these in camera ‘filters’ in other camera’s as well.

Experimenting a bit with colour setting in camera filters. Dandelion flowers are the perfect subject for colours and non colours.
You can even alter the colours in processing the photo. My basic IPhoto has several possibilities. The blue photo was made that way, never too old to learn, is the saying!

Taste is what will effects it the most, personally that blue is a bit well a bit out of balance.
Blue is the complimenting colour of orange so it doesn’t work so well with yellow, yellow needs purple.
