Why I prefer natural colors in my photography
So as you know many photographers love to go with certain color tints on their edited photography. These looks are generally a fad that will be popular for a time until the next trend gets established. I've literally seen a dozen or so looks in my time including Blue tints, orange tints, red tints, teal tints, and today the brown tinted look is in. Tints are basically a color scheme in the image that tends to dominate more than others creating a certain look that people may find unique and interesting. Another trend I've seen among many Ventura County Photographers is the bright(almost washed out look) with kind of a flat color scheme. This again has been a popular trend as it creates a some what dreamy and nostalgic look. Now I'm not against being creative and I think these styles can be flattering and I have thought a lot about editing using these styles of the latest trends. Now here is a few reasons why I personally stay away from these trends for whole sets of pictures. 1) These are trends and fads and as time passes they might not be thought of as a flattering style anymore. Remember trends and fads come and go and what is thought to be avantgarde one day may not be in a fear years time. These types of fads and trends are truly a preference and not necessarily going to be liked by everyone. Not only that but sometimes you may not like the image style in 5-10 years when that fad has grown out of style. 2) Natural color and lighting does not go out of style. There will always be a place for natural color and lighting. A beautiful photo with realistic color and and exposure will be just as beautiful 20 years from now as it was when it was taken. While some may see natural color and exposures as boring, I have actually reached a happy medium when it comes to creating photos that are different from a style point of view while still keeping a very realistic look to them. So what's my secret you may ask? My secret is creating rich colors and rich contrast within my images. This is what I do to set myself apart from many other photographers. I prefer this style of image editing to make an image pop off the screen or paper. The color is still accurate to the scene but it seems to have this very life like quality to it. The image should make you feel as if you are there enjoying the vibrant scene in person where the picture was taken. Don't get me wrong I do love Black and White photography too as that has been proven to be timeless but when I am giving those image to the client it is the exception and not the rule. So What I will do when I am feeling creative about color tints it is usually only a few pics here and there that I am going to be experimental with. Its not a whole set of images as I feel that most people will see it as an extra bonus to have a few stylized shots that are different but not all of them and if they don't care for it then its ok too as its only a few shots here and there. Having said that I have studied what makes photographs timeless. I see myself as a student of the art of photography. What I have found is that vibrant yet realistic colors tend to always be appreciated. Also giving the images just the right amount of contrast. When you include a nicely saturate image with the right amount of contrast you get an image that pops off of the page. My goal is to make those colors come alive on the screen but still giving the impression of a realistic scene.
