52 Weeks of Color – Electric LimeFebruary 27, 2011
Thank goodness for the designers that are following the 52 WoCC. I had a great time window shopping at a handful of stores, but without Whippet & Buck, I wouldn’t have made it through this week’s challenge. I can’t say for sure that I’ll wear my electric lime (or Rio Grande, as W&B calls it) purchases ever again, but they were perfect for this pic. I’m a little sad that my Windlight settings sapped the green from the top, but I was playing with shadows and found that this was my best compromise between color and shadow and Depth of Field. I have a handful of blogs that I use when I’m looking for hints and tutorials but my current go-tos are Luna’s BootCamp and Strawberry Singh’s Tutorials. Love, love, love these ladies and their willingness to share knowledge with others.
Overall, this was a fun week. I appreciate being forced to wear colors that are outside of my usual repertoire. I appreciate being indirectly challenged by the other bloggers participating in the 52 WoC to try new techniques or perspectives or emotion in my pics.
