We three have been patiently watching all winter for birds to come feed at our window.
(Can you tell that's the photohunt word?)
Maybe now that spring is here, it will happen!
Heeeere, birdy, birdy, birdy....

Caturday Art Hop
Last week (or was it the week before?) Sparkle asked if we'd show the 'before' shot as well as the 'after' shot once it was color-corrected. So for this week's art hop, here they both are!
I used luminance, color balance, desaturation, brightness and contrast levels in Photoshop to go from what you see above to what you see below.
Color temperatures play a huge role in my day job, where the location you're filming might even have a mix of light sources.
Here, I wanted to take the temperature from tungsten (which is around 2800K) to daylight (which is around 6500K).
What's with the numbers - 2800K and 6500K?
When filming, movie cameras are "shaded" (you are allowed to remap their color values) so that you change how the lens sees the scene. Some of this is done in camera, and some of this is done by physically gelling the light with either a blue or orange film, called a CTO ("color temperature orange") or a CTB ("color temperature blue").
What I did in Photoshop simulates the exact same thing. I took it from a more orange tint to a more blue tint!
(uh, and I also used the clone stamp to de-fur the chair - ha!)
