Tints and Tones — Selective Colour

Serendipity love the effect of selective colour and monochromatic colour techniques which can used to suggest and highlight very subtle details, drawing the eye overlooked wall decorations or glass chandeliers. Even with a more frank selective colour like the Melbourne rendered blue below, the idea is not to shout technique but to gently draw the eye to the beautiful details and tonal elements of the image.

Little details, like the way the sun shines on a veil, are highlighted rather than lost. It is these features that can make your wedding album truly unique. At Serendipity we strive to capture your aesthetic, and the feel of your day on the page.

At Serendipity we have been developing an exciting red sepia technique. This subtle application is formed by combining many colours and red sepias channels together and then rotating. This can produce lovely autumn effects. Tis tint can be quite powerful or subtle and is perfect for romantic and rustic weddings.

At Serendipity Photography we are proud to present our array of wonderful pages on our favourite photographic techniques! High saturation gives photographs a vibrant and dramatic feel, drawing out the colours that are already present in order to create an almost magical moment. Copper Blue is our newest technique, combining old and new historical aesthetics for stylish effect. To emphasise the light and shade of your special day we use high contrast to bring out the complex and dynamic mood of your wedding. Lilac, purple and gunmetal grey come together with beautifully subtle results and slight tonal variations to capture intimate and personal moments. Red sepia is the perfect way to bring an historical and graceful ambience to your photographs, giving them a warmth and richness as well as allowing for complex textures. Monochrome uses black and white photographs and subtly incorporates coloured tones to create depth and complexity. Warm tones can also add a new layer of intensity and sophistication. At Serendipity we use a wide range of techniques to adjust, create and enhance tints and tones.
