Vividly Normal

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

Do you wish your photos had more pizazz? Are your images falling flat on color? Here’s a quick and easy way to add more punch to your pictures.

When shooting anything with lots of color or on drab days when things look blah (that’s a technical term) make one slight setting change on your point and shoot. Generally found under the Functions button or Settings, you’ll see the option for Vivid. That one little switcheroo will make your pictures pop! See for yourself.

  1. Hi Lisa! I really appreciate all of the work that you, Scott, and Barrie put into the “Picture This!” blog. I check in daily looking for new posts!

    I have a question for you….Is ok to leave the vivid option on all of the time? When wouldn’t it be appropriate?

    P.S. Thanks for the Disneyland post card!

    Lisa respond: I never use it on people because it can make anyone with rosy cheeks look like a lobster. It’s happened to me. 🙁
