Just started colour printing....Though finding making endless test strips very time consuming was wondering how do you sort a colour shift in the shadow area without affecting the midtones/highlights

Nice "polaroid" style look, overall I like the vintage look. Indeed is a pain to get the color right by trial and error, but once you nail it if you stick with same negative and paper it's in most cases consistent. The problem with the color cast in the shadows it's a tricky one. I have a few approaches: if most of the picture, or the main subject is in the shadows I correct the color there and let the rest go where it may. I also tend to use a 81b filter when shooting to get rid of the bluish. If the shadow is a smaller part of the scene you can do some dodging and burning trick changing selectively the filtration, I know this might be challenging... Sometimes the part in the shadow is not important or the cast is not so nasty, after all, and I just leave it alone...


Cheers, M.

I also like the 'polaroid' / vintage look of the picture and the colouring.


Personally I like it as it is and wouldn't bother to try and change it.
