Lighting plus

Photo was originally just a test shot, 2 minutes photoshop made it pretty.

Originally took it to because I wanted to take a simple photo of orange on top of blue, the theory being that warm colours on top of blue colours give the feeling that the warm colour advances towards the viewer and gives the photograph more ‘pop’. In this case it was an orange sign on top of a blue sky. Of course, the photo ended up remarkably garish 🙂 I think the orange in the sign might have been to dark.

Cropped and converted to black+white in photoshop and used the ‘infrared’ setting which gave it a much nicer feel, sort of like a photo from the 60’s. The infrared setting is completely whack so there must have been something truely wrong with the colours beforehand for this to work 🙂
