Thread: Colour not strong enough

  1. #1

    Default Colour not strong enough

    HI,

    I was trying to take some indoor shoot.
    The pics came out not take strong as i expected.

    Is it the colour setting or the Aperature/ shutter speed?

    can show us the pics?

    it is always best if you can show us what you mean by "color not strong enough".

    Overexposed?

    lack of contrast?

    not saturated?

    dirty filter?

    can be anything.... if you can't describe it, post a photo to show.

    Cool Re: Colour not strong enough

    next time u may want to omit the bright backgd, so that u can expose more for the car,
    ie. u can open up the aperture more to let more light fall on the car or up the ISO/ slow the shutter & give a BRIGHTER orange. i guess that is what u mean by strong.

    for now, u can edit it in PS

    Use spot or zone metering to meter on the car. Also, you may need to adjust your white balance.

    it looks pretty strong for me, but might have something to do with white balance.

    like pro_fhm has mentioned, you can edit it in photoshop to strengthen the colors.

    actually, do you calibrate your monitor?

    Err... Define "strong"... Seems pretty relative to me...

    If it's not saturated enough for you, try some simple S-curves in the curves function of PS followed by a slight increase in saturation... (<+10)
