Using A Pair of Sunglasses To Create An Effect To A Picture


Few months ago one friend at Kampret group gave me a good construction comment to one of my pictures. I took a picture which the sky looked so pale and dull due to its very bright light. Since I only am using a digital pocket camera, Kodak Easy Share C713, and not having a UV filter so he suggested me to use a pair of polarized sunglasses. Yes, it is a trick just like taking macro photography with a magnifying glass.

Two days ago the weather was very good. It was sunshine and very bright. So I went out to a country park for taking pictures using my sunglasses. Unfortunately I only have an ordinary one and it is a brown colour. Obviously I cannot use it as a filter as my friend mentioned it. But I thought why not just use it and see what result would come up later. In my mind at the time I thought that I would convert the image into the warm nuance and perhaps it would be easier if I took picture and used my sunglasses to create the effect.

Here my original shot

To make my picture more impressive so I edited it with Picassa. With its tone tools I increased the shadow and the colour temperature until I got a nice tone that I liked. Then later applied warmify to create a warm nuance.

And here my result

What do you think? What is your impression to those pictures? Do you have any special trick when taking pictures or creating special effect? Would you like to share it with me?

  4. What an extraordinary effect! I like it very much, Inge. I never would have thought to shoot a photo thru sunglasses in a million years. If someone had suggested it to me, I would have taken the photo wearing the sunglasses, then wondered why the photo didn’t look any different… : (
