Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk

Last Saturday, 18 July 2009, photographers all over the world gathered at different times, in different cities to join in the phenomenon that is photo walking. South Africa was no exception, with ten walks throughout the country. I took part in the Stellenbosch walk as did Irmel and her daughter. There were some other familiar faces from the club but I’m bad at matching names to faces so you’ll have to excuse me for not naming them. We met up at 7:30 at Jan Cats restaurant and the walk got underway at 8am, when we all split up and ambled off for two hours of photography up and down Dorp Street. We met up again at 10am and many hung around to chat and drink coffee. Sadly I had things to do so had to leave right away.

To see some of the photos taken, have a look at at the following on Flickr;

Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom: Brightening Greens with Luminance

Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom: Brightening Greens with Luminance

Of all the colors in the visible spectrum, the human eye is most sensitive to green. But capturing green as brightly in photographs as it is to the naked eye, especially in foliage, can be difficult. With summer vacation season in full swing, green foliage and grass creep into a lot of photos, and you might find yourself trying to pump up those greens in post production to be brighter in the final image. But that is easier said than done.
