For example the images featured here were made on a very frosty late November morning walk. The subject of the story was the way the frost muted the landscape, gave everything a delicate look and took on a pastel palette. A big contrast from the bright red, orange and yellow fall colour scheme of only a few short weeks prior. The newly frosted scenes had a quiet to them… as if nature were getting ready for her long winter’s nap. In past I might have only processed and shared one of the images from that day – the best one – but on this occasion I was mindful of the muted palette and made an effort to create several images that shared it so that they might work together.
Obtaining a cohesive colour palette while in the field can be tricky. Light and conditions change constantly but if you simply keep your goal in mind you might be surprised. Of course if you are shooting in RAW then there is always the option to tweak images later while editing to bring them in line with each other. While I find a cohesive colour palette the easiest, if it eludes you try using an other element to unite your images such as a similar subject (ie. things found at the beach, or only reflections) or a similar style (ie. all macro, all abstract or all minimalist).
