How to Make Greens "Pop" in Forest Photography

edited August 2013 Posted in » Canon T2i Forum
I was wondering if there is a filter recommendation for early morning forest photography under overcast skies that might make my greens pop even more. I use a Canon EFS 15-85mm lens, shoot in Av mode, use a tripod and shoot 3 exposures. Thanks!


  • @alacazam - There are some warming filters out there that will liven things up a bit, but before throwing down money on a filter I would try two things...

    1. Change your white balance to cloudy. This will saturate the greens a bit more and give you warmer tones.

    2. If you really want to make the greens pop, you'll need to do some post-processing. If you don't have any editing software at the moment, my advice would be to go with Lightroom. It's the gold standard for photo organization/editing and it's not as complex as Photoshop.

    All the best!
