Bryce Canyon under a blanket of snow

Photo By Daniel De Marco
Pro Critique
What many photographers don’t realize is that a white winter sky and a blanket of snow act as the perfect color neutral light source and reflector, making such a day an absolute outdoor studio. The red rock of Bryce can be photographed with the utmost color integrity. Only a hint of color enhancement in the computer may be necessary in the computer. Be aware when you boost the colors of the surrounding rock, that you don’t introduce color to the white snow. In general when enhancing colors, use small steps. It’s easy to take it too far.


Lightroom 2 Tip
Paint Attributes To Multiple Images
The Painter tool makes it easy to apply a variety of attributes to multiple images quickly and easily. In the Library module, choose the Grid view using the button below the preview area. Then click on the Painter tool (the "can of spray paint" icon) to activate this tool. From the pop-up below the grid display of images, choose the attribute you want to apply to a set of images. Then enter or select the desired value to the right of the pop-up. The Painter tool is now armed and ready to use. You can click on an individual image to apply the attribute you specified, or click and drag across multiple images to apply the attribute to all of them. When you're finished, simply click on the circle to the left of the Paint pop-up below the grid of images to put the Painter tool away.
