I’m having trouble figuring out how much of this is true scene and lighting and how much of this is post processing. I follow a lot of photographers in the Oregon and Washington area and the way they bring out the green colors in these forest scenes are just really incredible. Vibrant, deep green, glowing, almost kind of perfect.
I think part of this for sure is time of year, rain, lighting, and overall conditions. But it looks to me like there’s some processing involved that really brings that color out. You can see in some of the images above that even in the shadows there is a really rich green glow in some areas.
I apologise if this is maybe a dumb question. It doesn’t look like simple color or luminosity adjustment to me. At least i haven’t been able to recreate it. Possibly light painting or targeted Orton effect?
