This was taken on a recent trip to the Fortitude Valley, near where I live. I was using the Highlighter mod I mentioned in an earlier post, so that I could get some softer colours. I think that the mod sometimes works in conjunction with the natural vividness of the Harinezumi 2++ and you get photos like this one: soft and dreamy, but with some vivid reds.

While I really, really love the Digital Harinezumi 2++, one of my issues with it is that the photos tend to turn out super-saturated and very contrasty. Now, this isn’t usually a huge issue, but sometimes I just want to take photos with softer colours, which would give them more of a dreamy feel. From the photos I’ve seen, the first Harinezumi does seem to take softer colours, but nonetheless I am determined to get that sort of effect with my trusty Zumi 2++
I’ve been experimenting with lots of ways to achieve this and I’ve finally found a cheap and easy way to take dreamy photos with softer colours. As a proof-of-concept, the image above gives you an idea of what to expect.
