To help you capture the best of autumn, this tutorial will cover:
• ‘My Colors’ and ‘Picture Style’
• White balance
• Polarising filters
• Suggestions for photographic subjects
The ‘My Colors’ menu (IXUS and PowerShot models) offers a wide range of options to control the colour in your photos. ‘Neutral’ usually gives the most accurate colours, but these often appear muted when viewed on a computer screen. If you want to bring your images of autumn leaves to life, try using ‘Vivid Red’.
‘My Colors’: ‘Neutral’, ‘Vivid Red’
Experiment with ‘My Colors’ settings by first shooting a scene in ‘Neutral’ and then in one or more of the other options. You will soon learn which settings suit your favourite subjects.
