Many of us have a geographical disadvantage when it come to bright colors at this time of year. But who says Kodachrome was only used to photograph striking colors like red, yellow, purple and magenta? Brown photos matter! Or did someone else say that already.
My photos aren’t exclusively brown but brown remains omnipresent. Nevertheless I wanted to emulate that typical Kodachrome look. Looking for a succinct description of what exactly the Kodachrome look is, I came across this article. Not exactly succinct but it is interesting. Here a shorter summing up: It makes colors warm, vivid and truer than life. It’s that National Geographic look.
Programs such as Photoshop, Lightroom or Luminar provide several presets, plugins, filters and the like for creating a Kodachrome effect. The experts say none of them achieve the real thing. I am sure I didn’t either but I had fun playing with the pictures from yesterday’s walk.
