The above image may not seem like it has anything to do with color, but just hear me out. This young lady’s outfit was a very bright pinkish – orange. Almost garish. In fact, if she were jogging at night, I’m sure no one would have a problem seeing her. Well, I was going to convert it into black and white and set all the individual color sliders at minus 100. Then I added just the yellow to get some skin tone (yes, the yellow) and this is what I got. No other color slider has been moved from -100 even though the brown would suggest some red was added. Even the pink tones in her shorts and top look as if there is some red in here but, according to the lightroom sliders, there is not. But, you know what? Who really cares if there is red. I like the color treatment and so this is my post for Photo 101’s prompt!
