Here is the link to the original assignment. 3 Stars

Take any picture in the entire world and change the color hue of the picture to completely change how it looks! Then post it on flickr to show the world!

So this is a photo I took a few years ago of a yellow monarch butterfly on a beautiful August afternoon. It took about ten minutes of me following the butterfly around with camera to get it to stay still enough for me to capture this photo.  This photo is a favorite of mine because it took so long for me to get a decent picture of the butterfly and I feel quite accomplished that I was able to do that as well.

I am sure there are  many photographers that feel the same way about an accomplishing photo that they have taken. I know some photographers go to great lengths just to get that perfect shot. That’s what many National Geographic photographers are famous for, as well as photographic journalists that will run into the heart of a war, just to capture the disappear and heartache of fighting.

Hue Who

Remember how I said I took this picture during a summer afternoon? It doesn’t exactly look like that in the first photo because I adjusted the color hue to make it look darker and possibly night time. I changed the hue of the photo using Photoshop Elements 11, which was relatively simple. I opened the photo I wanted to change the one seen below. Then I went to Enhance > Adjust Color > Adjust Hue/Saturation as you can see below. Then I just adjusted the hue back and forth to get the effect I wanted. Now you see the finish product shown above!

  1. It’s amazing how something as simple as changing the hue can transform a photo. Comparing the original with the finished product, the two photos look completely different to me. Showing the various adjustments and explaining the process are really helpful in understanding exactly how you completed this assignment.

    • Thank you! I always try to use screenshots when it can be useful and help someone else learn the same process that I did. #talkingpolack106
