I have difficulty capturing purple, deep purple, e.g., the deep purple of the gladiolus. When I take a photo with the right exposure (as indicated by those nifty little marks in my camera), the color turns out red purple, not deep blue purple as it should be.
The color should be like this:
To get the dark shade, I lowered the light until I could see the right color in my viewfinder. It turned out to be too dark, I could barely see the outlines of the petals. I edited the picture to increase the brightness to show some flower details.
Anyway, in my desire to approximate the actual purple-ness of this gladiolus, I played with the light settings and here are some results:
Different exposure, different purples. Oh well. I think it is magic. 😉
But come to think of it, I have some difficulty dealing with dark, deep colors. Dark bloody red sometimes come out a little brighter in my photos (which are at this point all in Jpeg format). I’ve been too lazy to try the RAW file.
But thank you for dropping by and reading. I hope you enjoy the wonderful shades of purple. 🙂
