Returning with the day’s catch | Morro Bay, CA
If you’ve been following my photography for awhile you’ll probably recall that I enjoy making photos with selective colorization (taking a black & white photo and painting back in a small amount of color). You might have also noticed that red is often my favorite color to use with this technique.
Well, I hadn’t used this technique in awhile and recently came across a great subject – a fishing boat with just a touch of red on it! I captured this image as the boat was pulling in to Morro Bay at the end of the day with it’s catch. It must have been a good day at sea since the seagulls were swarming! (“Mine! Mine!” you’ve seen Finding Nemo, right? If not, check out this clip on YouTube)
This image was captured handheld at 1/400 sec at f/7.1, ISO 100 with my Canon EOS 7D and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens. Processing was done in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, Nik Dfine 2, and Nik Sharpener Pro 3.
What do you think? Selective colorization is a technique that is easily overused, so I try not to use it too often. However, I think this was a good candidate. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Let me know in the comments.
Until next time, have a wonder-filled day!
