Lazy Days Of Summer Page 2
While the world would seem colorful enough, there are times and subjects that tempt us all to add an even more vivid color rendition to the mix. With film you do this by choosing a more highly-saturated slide film, like Velvia; with digital it's simply a matter of boosting the saturation in camera or in software. Our next Picture This! assignment is Saturated Color, and we'll take images that benefit from vivid color created with slide film or via digital camera or software. This simple photo of a plastic fork on a plate was made with an Olympus EVOLT E-330 digital SLR with saturation set on +2.
