What is a colored flash!?!?The first looks like you shot it at night.The poppies are so pretty. We get the orange CA poppies growing wild, but the wild red ones are more interesting.
I got book covers that are coloured plastic and cut the ends. I put it over the flash. This forms a cone of (in his case blue) light on something all while leaving the background natural. Where it's normally used is in separating a model from the background. Either by, well say you're blonde, you could put a rim of red light on your hair. Or if you were wearing a green top/dress you could cast a red light on a background or vice-versa. Now that's a bit sledge hammer-y. But you can change the intensity in a few ways.And no, twas in the middle of the day. I closed down the iris to drastically lower the ambient. The plant is this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angelica Yeah, that CA poppy is a bit poisonous looking, But I really like the other one you've got the Matilija https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romneya
Ha! I looked up colored flash to see what it is before commenting, and there were a few photos of people using colored transparencies. I figured you were talking about something really technical or a piece of equipment. :) That's got to be kind of fun to play with. Can you see it when you take the photo, in the view finder or not until after the shot is taken? The poppy you linked is very pretty too. We should be seeing a lot of those this year with all the fires we're having. I am still partial to the red ones though.
Yep, that's them. Well, it can get remarkably technical. Here no, though. I was simply looking to envelop the Angelica in blue. Even the shadows are dark blue. You know those zombie films, and Dracula. There were filmed using coloured glass. The red ones here in Ireland have a nasty taste to them. The Royal British legion use the poppy to remember the dead of WW1 and every Oct/Nov you see them in the UK but never here and as a %%% more died in that war from Ireland than from the UK.
The colored flash photo looks a lot like, but not quite, like what we know as "Queen Anne's Lace" (of which I have written many poems as they are wildflowers frequently seen in the Midwest).
Yeah, we've that one too. Wild carrot is another name for it.This one is quite a bit different in real life. Lets put it this way. You wouldn't bet on the difference between it and wild hemlock. Yes there's a difference, when seen side by side. But would you eat this one, not a chance.
Using that filter puts an interesting spin on the first shot. I love the poppies.
Yes, that was what I was after. I wanted to see how a very strong colour would show in the frame.
I was going to make the same comment as Sage. We have a local potter in our area that specializes in making pots with the image of Queen Anne's Lace imprinted into every piece. My mom has a whole collection of them. Never thought to color a flash but then being partial colorblind might play a large part of that. I have worked so hard to train my eyes to notice what colors people like and how they look to me, that I haven't experimented with changing the colors, other than to reduce them to black and white occasionally.
Hmmm, I can see how they'd look good on a pot. But I can also see applying the image to the pot would be a proper pain. I've been buying those expensive mags to see how they do it. And for the most part they use lamps, not photoshop. Yes, enhanced in PS but not made there.
