Pastel Photograph of Kids Lighting Firecrackers on the Street
These little kids were so cute running around lighting off little popper firecrackers. And they were totally cool with me getting right up with them to take their pictures. I took a whole bunch. But before I did, I made sure to switch it to RAW + JPG for all you folks. Why? Because I knew I wasn’t going to want to process these photos on my computer; they were already going to look awesome with my process settings on my camera….meaning no fancy work required. I upped the saturation and sharpness among a few other things to get this result. The Raw looks okay too, but the bottom JPG looks better—more dramatic, sharper, and with more vivid color.
Here obviously was a longer exposure to get them slightly blurring around and mixing all their pretty pastel colors together. I just love the look of it. It seems like it must have been a barefoot beach night with those colors. Maybe if I keep thinking that I can alter my memory of me freezing to sub normal internal temperature all night.
