You can sort of make daylight photos look like evening shots in Lightroom. The shadows won’t quite match because the sun isn’t actually low but it will at least fool some people and seem like avery warm day to others (movie-like sun, Arizona or something). Use the temperature control sparingly, go to the bottom of the menu and turn the image calibration tone to the pink side to taste. You might have to bring out the blues in the HLS section. Reduce the shadows and bring back some blacks, add some contrast and get rid of any residual bird poo.
This is taking garden-creeping to the next level. Taken at an allotment centre, with 10s of gardens next to each other and lots of flowers/plants to photograph. I don’t have all that many photos to show though. It was quite rainy hence the water droplets but during editing I managed to figure out how to process the photo to look realistically like and overcast evening – warm rather than grey/blue (tutorial will be posted in a couple of days).
This post is skipping one photo but thats in anticipation for Macro Week #6. This was from the passenger’s seat on the drive back from oxford visiting a family friend. The sky was hard not to photograph.
Two days before an exam I decided to forget all about biology and relax with some weed…s… Lots of weeds in our little garden but the flowers and bulbs were too beautiful to get rid of.
The next few posts are the fruit of this “productive” evening.
