Default New Challenge - Jul 17-30 - Red

We did this several years ago and I thought we should try again. This was a test of equipment before and is again.

Back in the film days, red was the most difficult color to capture accurately because the chemicals used to capture red were the weakest of all the chemicals on the film. When I started shooting digital, I noticed that reds still didn't perform too well. They probably use the same chemicals in the sensor as on film!!

There has been a huge advance in the quality of digital cameras in the past few years. I am shooting a Nikon D100 and it is a little weak in red capture. The D100 is five or six years old.

Your mission, should you accept it, is to shoot red subjects (flowers are the best). If you can shoot a scene with several shades of red and orange that would be even better. I am anxious to see how the newer cameras perform.

You may shoot any red subject you desire but it should include bright reds in the scene.

Please put RED in your subject line.
