White balance for mood was this week’s theme for the 52 Week Project. Axle was the model, and I wanted to capture his impeccable “play dead” to create a different mood by pushing my white balance in Lightroom. We managed to get a couple of images but in typical Axle form he wanted to play more than play dead! Another benefit with Axle is those mega pouty jowls that make him look a little sad when he’s not panting.
White balance refers to the temperature of an image. Cooler colored images (more blues) tend to make things feel a little more sad and gloomy, while warmer images suggest a little more sunshine and happiness. Do you prefer the warm or cool white balance?
And since we were in the yard playing with the new Orbee-Tuff Luna ball by Planet Dog (super durable and glows in the dark!) I couldn’t resist getting shots of Axle in action!
Next stop over to Charlotte NC based photographer Kim with BARKography and see how she worked with white balance to create a mood!
