Purple blush

November 29, 2012

If  the ocean is blue because it reflects the sky, why is the sky blue if the space is dark? Can we still trust colours? Certainly not when shooting with a tungsten film. Under sunlight (warm color temperatures) light conditions, tungsten films will produce a  bold purple or pink tint.

The water is chilly in Portugal, but the surf’s up! Coxos wasn’t firing, but I had perfect sessions in Ribeira d’Ilhas and Arrifana. A boa vida, não e?

Beach bum

October 23, 2011

You can also escape from central Hong-Kong madness by going to the other side of the island. Hit Shek’O beach or Big Wave bay. Don’t bring your surfboard though, for this is just a marketing name. The bus road is very cool, snaking trough the hills, up and down to the beach.

I used an ISO 64 (tungsten white balance) expired film. Expired films can give surprising results and a slight pink tint. But combined with the ISO 64, usually enhancing blue tones, the pics got a full pink tint. There’s a french song saying “Je vois la vie en rose”.
