    Great blue shadows. Sometimes I forget that shadows have color and are not just shades of gray.
    Painters have been scolded for rendering colored shadows. The photo exonerates them.Report

      My commercial photography mentor David Loveall was very good at playing with different colors of white light. We’d carry a full set of correction gels from CTB +2 to CTO +2 and color key and fill in different ways for different effects.

      Later, working in video, which doesn’t have nearly the lattitude of film, I found a could “fake” more contrast by adding a little CTO to the key and a little CTB to the fill. The actual ratio might only be a stop, but the emotional ratio with the color roll would look like 2 stops or more.Report
