Operating as usual
In photography, it is he who is responsible for the majority of mindless photographs. He is the joiner, the imitator, the photographer who plays it safe. Such people have surrendered their individuality in exchange for approval, approval by the system, the organization, public opinion, their fellows at the photo club. They have succumbed to fads and trends, they are
the in-people who belong to a group or school, and they look down on anybody who does not belong.
(Feininger 1974 p. 136)
from The Tao of Photography
"Constricted by pre-set images, such photographers mechanically attempt to reproduce a rigid, preestablished vision, thereby forestalling the possibility of new discoveries. Their awareness is saturated with expectations which block the possibility of seeing the unexpected."
-The Tao of Photography
Really cool information on color temperature!
One example that may help us understand how we perceive, even when we don’t realize we’re doing it, is the lighting technique often used in different areas of a supermarket. The meat section is generally lit up by a low reading of °K (3.000-3.500). We don’t consciously see the warm tone of the light, but we get the impression of a blood-red, tasty cut of meat, all the same. Then, once at home, we open the package to discover the same slice of meat appears to be a completely different color.
The bread bakery section is normally lit up by a slightly higher CT (4.000-4.500). These temperatures make the product seem to be surrounded by a golden-yellow color. Detergent products are lit by an even higher CT (more than 6.500). Here the dominant hue is light blue, conveying a sensation of cleanliness. The choice of a suitable CT becomes a useful marketing tool to guide the client through his/her perception of a product and its color, even though the perception is different from reality.
If we can use CT effectively in a supermarket, why can’t we use it in photography, since the CT can be varied by adjusting the White Balance. Indeed, a White Balance adjustment favors the creation of an image without any dominance, so it favors a correct one. However, by intentionally changing it, the WB can be an excellent instrument to use to transfer a different perception of the snapped reality.
