SLR Lounge Constructive Video Critique Ep 6: Details and Color Choices

By fotosiamo on November 27th 2012

In this episode of the SLR Lounge Constructive Video Critique, we take a look at several portrait variations in the style of high-key, vintage, black & white reportage, and yes, Total-Recall. We also take a look at a couple landscape and cityscape, as well.

When it comes to shooting, it is important to pay attention to details such as color, background, and lighting. If there is a conflict between any of these elements, the image may not turn out as desired. Moreover, these elements should work to enhance the subject rather than distract the viewer’s attention.

To learn more on how you can improve your own photography, take a look at the Constructive Video Critique as hosted by our very own Post-Production Pye.
