Re: [photographic-techniques] Snow White Beaches
- Slaughter, The problem may not even be your exposure! Most photo labs analyze your negatives based on what they think is natural. So if you are photographing people in your scenes, ask your lab to print for human skin tones, otherwise they indeed are trying to print your photos to what they think sand should look like, [brown]. While photographing your scenes ,make sure your exposure is indeed correct for the situation. I find the best times to photograph is early in the morning [first two hours of the day] and the dusk hours or [last two hours of any day] although if you're working with people its difficult to convince them they should get up early for the pretty light!

Subject: [photographic-techniques] Snow White Beaches
I am new to the group and I an an "avid amateur" coming forth to seek
your wisdom. I live in Pensacola Florida where we have quartz beaches
making them blidingly white - however most photographs make the
beaches look brownish. Is there anyway to brighten the sand? (A
photographer once told me there was a "trick" but hand't been to the
beach in so long he couldn't remeber what it was LOL!)
My camera is a Pentax ME Super and I have several different lenses
(wide angle, zoom, etc.) and filters (polarizer, uv, diffuser and
other "weird ones.").
