CARINUS n. latin (brown red, burgundy)
While exploring the deep north of Maine, something subtle appeared in the landscapes I saw in the winter time that I have never paid attention to before. It’s a stage of winter that is very different from the winter icy wonderland (white). I named the stage Carinus, because it is a stage that is a little darker than autumn. There are stronger brown, red and oranges in the landscape.
Although it might look like I have applied sepia or red filters to the photographs, I didn’t. The time of the day was around noon when these were taken so the light was at its brightest. The fact these red colors were contrasting with the rest of the dull ones helped emphasize the colorizing of the light in the pictures, making them look warmer. The main alterations were made through curves, brightness/contrast, exposure and burn/dodge tools.
