Assignment 1: Bad Photos


Kate Swanson


This photo fulfills requirement 4. In easter spirit :) this scene is a back-lit arrangement of easter chicks on a dark green book. I used the the "Shade" setting for white balance for this scene, even though it was brightly lit, to give a yellow tone to the image. This is most apparent in the green book, originally a dark green (rgb 50 50 30) to a light yellow green (rbg 130 70 0). The shadows on the front of the chicks also lost their grayish tone and became a warm orange.

Overall, the change in white balance gives the photo a warm, cohesive feel - more like the chicks are a community than the original image, which highlighted the individuality of the subject.
