See How Color Blind Photographer Captures Amazing Colors
This is why I was kind of surprised to learn that Tomer is actually color blind. I thought that this was pretty weird as his photographs are extremely vivid and true. He made those photos to explain how he sees the world. Imagine this: the leading photo is kinda close to reality (a little saturated, right, but not that far off); the photo after the jump is how Tomer sees the world.
This is how Tomer explains it: In the photos you can see how I see the world. The red/orange photos are how normal people see they get the full color. The yellowish photos are what I see them. Actually, I barely see any difference between them…
Tomer ends with an inspiring message:
Being color blind poses many difficulties for me as a landscape photographer, mainly in the editing part. It took me a long time to develop a workflow and a sense of how I need to edit properly. I managed to do so with the help of good and skillful friends like Tal Duek Photography. Even today I still consult with people I appreciate before I finish working on a photo and send it out to the world.
If you struggle achieving results you want, don’t give up! It’s a matter of learning, trying, consulting and improving till you get to where you want
