Messing with filters

This new camera is a thing of wonder!!! :)   I've always loved photos that pick out one colour and leave everything else black and white - you see it a lot in adverts.  But I thought it was some hifalutin trick in a TV studio editing suite ... But lo and behold I can do it on my camera ... whoop ...
I haven't the heart to cut the fuchsia yet although I can hardly see out ..
but I'm not sure I like it ... it's a very cold effect.  Still, it may come in useful sometime.   All you wonderful photographists out there can maybe give me some tips?  Pretty please?

  1. I didn't know you could do that on a camera either. I have always been fascinated by ads that do that. But I guess for the average Joe it's not a big help.

    1. I know, I can't really see a use for it either Jo, other than for playing with.

    1. Yeh, my camera's not that fancy, but it offers lots of different colour options too - only blue, or purple or yellow etc ... Great fun. Thanks for visiting Sarah :)

  3. An amazing effect and it does make your photographs look very professional and clever. I particularly like the one of the cotoneaster.

  4. Hi Fil - love Fuschias - remind me of Cornwall .. and then the Cotoneaster ... but like you ... I'd rather have more warmth around them. However I really should learn how to 'play' with my camera ... and my iphone - I understand that can do great things too ... takes great photos .. cheers Hilary

    1. It's great fun messing around with it Hilary although like you I still haven't figured out the phone for photos ... they're always too dark.
      One of these days I'm going to get to Cornwall - it sounds so beautiful and romantic.
