Is blue really that difficult to photograph with digital cameras? ‘Back in the day’, when people used film in their cameras, whenever someone showed slides or pictures of a blue flower they would always preface it by saying that the camera didn’t do justice to the blue of the flower.
I’m not sure that’s true any more. I took a picture of this pansy earlier today and I think it turned out pretty good. When I compare the picture on my screen to the real thing, it is pretty close. Not exact, but close. The real flower has just a wee bit more of a purplish caste to it.
The other day I took another picture of something blue… my blue jeans after an hour or so of being on my knees digging out sod. Everyone knows what color blue jeans are. What do you think, how did I do photographing my jeans? Did I capture the blue?
Now don’t be shocked by the mud on my knees. I know I’m not the only one who gets this dirty in the garden. Am I?
