Our second week of photography concentrated on colour – being able to see it, capture it, and even change it (by changing the white balance setting) to create different moods.
This porcelain snuff box on the dark wooden window sill looks like a scene from Downton Abbey. It is on auto white balance.
Give the scene a blue cast (tungsten setting) and it’s more like a scene from Agatha Christie.
I played around with the tungsten setting a lot. Here it created a contrast of colours (blue and yellow) that’s very cinematic.
