Remember, one of the reasons for this new blog is to highlight my journey toward becoming a better photographer.
One of the best ways to make sure I do that is to take on assignments. Not paid assignments, unfortunately, creative assignments. Those assignments come by way of Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry. who came up with the cool idea of You Capture, a weekly photo challenge for her followers. This week’s assignment was color.
I continue to be enthralled with the COLORs in the winter sky.
I happened upon this park the other day as storm clouds were being replaced by blue skies, which made for some good, dramatic COLOR. It just so happened some Snow Geese were still hanging around, too.
My girlfriend, Carol, has six cats. So, when I was at her house the other day, I had lots of subjects to experiment with. It was a great exercise for adjusting the ISO, shutter speed and aperture. I really wanted to get shots without the flash.
Natural COLOR is a bit hard to come by this time of year, at least as far as plants and birds are concerned. I noticed this bit of green on our honeysuckle bush the other day. I honestly don’t know if it has been holding on since last year or if it is new growth. I sort of think it’s holding on.
I wanted to post the image first and then the image after I’d applied a dry brush effect, which I really happen to like.
I hope you enjoyed the results of my COLOR challenge.
