Use the contrasting colors of warm and cold to take pictures of children with a sense of story!
In fact, more shooting scenes and simple shooting props can produce a lot of interesting photos. For example, this time, I used two newly bought lights. The rear flash of the mobile phone fills in light, and it is very simple to create a photo with a strong contrast between cold and warm.
I recently took this picture, the page views are quite high, and there are a lot of people who like it, just write this article to let everyone know, in fact, the proportion of the late stage is very small, as long as the early stage is shooting It’s in place, and it’s really convenient in the later stage. Here are simple later ideas and methods.
The finished picture is as above
In fact, only two 3 lights were used for this shooting, two of which are the R1SRGB lights of the god cow. The color temperature can be adjusted. If you don’t have this kind of lights, there are flashes with a soft cover. And color chips are also possible.
First, let me explain my specific shooting ideas. Since the weather in the northeast in early April was still relatively cold, I wanted to shoot the sunset with the effect of the night, and there was a traffic jam on the way to shoot. It was already dim when the sun went down and it was still relatively cold. I could only shoot this way. The idea at the time was to imagine if the child felt warm and the environment felt very cold, would it look good? My shooting equipment is a7m3+851.4Gm, two SRGB lights of Shenniu R1, and several mobile phone lights. If you don’t have such a large aperture lens, it is actually possible. My ISO increased to about 400, which is actually enough.
You can see that the environment at that time is already very dim, and you can see The two lights actually played a major role. In fact, in this highlight picture, it can only be seen that the front hand-held light, plus a light placed inside the lantern, the rear lights of 3 mobile phones illuminate the outline of the characters, which can be obvious You can clearly see the contour light in the film. If there is a light like SRGB, you can adjust the color temperature of warm colors to illuminate the theme, and there will be unexpected effects. Of course, if you use a flash, the characters can use color films to create a warmer atmosphere. Because the environment is evening, the camera’s automatic white balance will think that the environment is at night, and the cool colors will stand out.
As you can see in the original picture, there are no parameters. The original image has actually achieved the effect I want, but in order to create more atmosphere and picture, of course we need to post it a bit, such as the moon, the moon was taken that day, if you want the original image With the moon material, you can send a private message to me to get it for you to practice.
In fact, any shooting is the same, as long as you have a rough idea of the final picture, including the feeling of contrast between cold and warm, or the feeling of color contrast, you can use simple methods to create , The simpler, the more unexpected the effect will appear.
For this picture, in fact, the method is the same, both It is to create the contrast effect of cold and warm colors. The shooting environment is as shown in the picture below. Because the river is behind, there is no contour light. It can also be seen in the photo that the gift is actually my daughter prepared to give to the kid on the left Putting lights in it will create a warm color and the feeling of a luminous box. Photography is actually more about ideas. Many simple things on hand can create a good atmosphere. I haven’t bought this before. If you want to use the light when planting the lights, the LED lights of the mobile phone are actually possible. Using lipstick thinly on the lights will also create a warm color effect. Of course, it is certainly not as good-looking as the SRGB lights. It needs a certain amount of later stage. The following is a live view of this photo.
The shooting method is very simple, because the girl is older, so shoot It will be more convenient and will not run around. You can lower the ISO to ensure the image quality. Below is the original image of this photo. In fact, once the original picture is taken, it will be very simple in the later stage.
Take the first photo as an example, let’s talk about this photo in detail The post process and method of shooting:
This was also shot on the same day Moon material, (Personally, I suggest that you take more pictures of the environment at the time when shooting. For example, you can use the mask method to do it later, to reduce the exposure. Why do you reduce the exposure when you get this moon picture? , Because I only need to highlight the moon, and after the side becomes black, I only need to filter the color in the layer mode in the later stage, and then I can easily filter the black and get the moon.
Actually, if the previous shooting is done, get I made a good original picture. In the later stage, only a few simple parts are needed to achieve a good-looking effect. Generally, I rarely work hard to grade, unless there are specific and extreme situations, this photo The later work process is divided into the following steps:
1: Let the surrounding environment become cooler, the characters are warm, and the atmosphere of the contrast between cold and warm is highlighted
2: The environment is further darkened and the characters are highlighted
3: Synthesize material, highlighting the environment is night
4: High contrast retention sharpening
Let’s do the first step directly. After importing ACR, we need to Set it as, open the smart object in Photoshop, so that we can continue to color
Then we increase the contrast of the photo, and reduce the color temperature and highlights, in order not to make the face illuminated by the light too bright. In this step, we can see that the effect we want has come out, because this tutorial has all the parameters Restore all to the default. I think the blue is a bit too high. I lowered the saturation of the blue in the HSL. This will look more advanced and highlight the warmth of the characters. The methods are as follows:
Then we open the object. Before we set the smart object, the picture will be opened as a smart object. We can adjust the brightness of the photo, contrast and other functions at any time, and then we Duplicate one layer and continue filter-camera filter.
Reduce the exposure, and then use a mask to wipe out the characters, This reduces the brightness of the surrounding environment and makes the subject more prominent.
Then we do the third step, which is to add the moon material, we Drag directly onto the photo, then select the filter color in the layer mode, follow the method in the previous step, and wipe the edges of the mask.
The basic film has been completed, but it is actually very simple. The last step is to keep the high contrast sharpening, press ctrl+shift+alt+e in ps.
stamp a layer, the value I entered is 3, and the layer mode is just soft light.
This is the specific shooting and later process of the picture above. In fact, it is very simple and rude.
In fact, every time I shoot, I will use the simplest props and the simplest shooting method. There is no need for a complicated workflow, but simple methods to achieve the effect we want.
