    More warmth?

    I'll post this here so others may learn along with me (hopefully).
    So in a recent thread it was suggested that "If you could "warm up" the tones....." and ".....so moving the temp to give warmth will add heaps to the image." http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...45#post1032645

    What does this mean and/or how is it achieved?

    Canon 80D, 60D, Canon 28-105, Sigma 150-600S, a speedlite, a tripod, a monopod, a remote release and a padded bag to carry things in.

    warmth.

    Blue colours are cool
    Orange colours are warm

    Think of this. When you get a cold winter day, with snow, it has a 'coolness' to it. This exerts itself on the human psyche. Think about watching a movie set in the Arctic, we as humans tend to feel cold, even though we might be in a nice warm room. Sometimes we will even shiver.

    Warm, think of a nice summer evening with a glowing sunset. It makes us feel warm.

    This is what is meant by warmth in photography. If you shoot RAW, you can adjust the white balance to create a warmer photo by slider the WB slider. You can also warm up a photo by increasing the saturation of the red/orange/yellows in the photo.

    Example:

    a 'cool' photo
    cold.jpg

    the same photo 'warmed'
    warm.jpg

    Notice how the tint in the second photo makes it feel like the environment that morning would have been warmer. The temperature a few degrees higher than the 'cool' photo

    In portraiture, warming up a photo can tend to make the subject appear more vibrant, lively, healthy even
