P52.2 Who We Become (30)

This week on Who We Become we are exploring creative use of tone.  Split toning is a technique where you can separately add color to the shadows or the highlights.  It was used in the film days to create those old sepia images you may remember.  But today it can be used to add drama and creativity to an image.  In my beach photo below, I’ve added blue to the shadows and a tinge of pink to the highlights.  Although this is done with editing, it more accurately evokes the drama of the sunset scene that I recall in my memory than does the original image.  Please head over to Who We Become and see all the creative use of tone by  clicking HERE.
