A sea kayak sits quietly at sunrise along the shore of Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park, Montana.
Photography Tip: (Full Disclosure) This sea kayak is not orange in my original capture. In the original photo, this is a blue kayak. The trouble is that a blue kayak, on blue lakeshore, with distant blue mountains lacks visual pop. To add interest to my foreground, I used Adobe Photoshop CC to paint the kayak a warm orange. The interplay of warm and cool colors creates color contrast and thus more interest for the human eye.
Changing the color of the kayak was easy thanks to an awesome tutorial from Photoshop Wizard Mark Johnson. To see how it is done go to http://bit.ly/1qE8lqA
I will be teaching a basic photography workshop for those willing to camp out for a few nights right here in Glacier Park with the Wilderness Institute in early October. More details soon.
