Pump Up The Color

Now in the digital age, the power is back with the photographer. Combining and manipulating color temperatures in camera as well as using tools like Photoshop etc, the possibilities of post-processing and color manipulation at my fingertips is unlimited.

Colors in a scene might “just be there”, but the hue and saturation of these colors can also be used as a compositional tool; creating balance, contrast, and harmony. Colors readily affect our emotions.
