Although I didn’t film this with my K-x, I thought it would be interesting to post. On Thursday a flash storm blew into NYC in the blink of an eye and actually developed into 2 confirmed tornados. This was filmed with my flip camera, looking out my window towards Manhattan. It was intense.
Color is a powerful tool in photography. I use it all the time to make some of my HDR photos really pop. While browsing this morning I found a pretty good article on lifehacker.com that explains some basics about color theory, and then goes on to show you how to use color as a tool.
