Faded Glory: A Showcase of Low Saturation Photography

There are many photographers who aim for vibrant explosions of color in their work. Using these bright hues to connect with and move the viewer. Though there are some who take a different path for reaching their audience, however color still plays a part. They actually process the photos to lower the saturation of color and thereby enhancing the mood and tone of the pictures.

By fading the images in this way, some truly breathtaking and inspiring results can take shape. Which is what we are hoping to accomplish for our readers today. In this showcase of low saturation photography we hope to inspire our readers with the glorious, emotive imagery these talented pros have created. Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful stuff. I get so torn when seeing this type of photography. I feel some art had been lost with the proliferation of instagram and things like that. I guess it will just force the creatives to be more creative.

  2. Very nice collection! I would love to see a couple of links to some tutorials just to see how others do it. Could benefit me to learn a new technique.
