This week our color was Yellow Green...
I hunted for my color everywhere, came up with a couple of ideas, but when I went over to my parents house to help celebrate my mom's birthday, there was a bunch of limes whose rind wasn't quite colored right. Almost like they were faded and it just so happened the color was pretty darn close to yellow green. Good thing my dad ALWAYS has limes on hand!
So, what do you think? I've been playing around with light and solid color backgrounds lately and I liked how this one turned out...I liked the moody shadows that fade into the background.
I thought I'd share my set-up again, don't mind my messy desk or the bad photos of the set-up. The setup below is the exact environmental settings I used to take the lime pictures. It was night and the only other light available was the light from the ceiling fan. Just like my pictures of the box of crayons, I did not use a flash on the lime photo, just the lamp you see here. The first photo I took of the lime had super dark shadows, so I used the white foam board to bounce some light onto the left side.
I took the pictures straight on and I used my 35mm 1.8 set at f/2.4, 1/30 shutter, ISO200. I used the Incandescent White Balance setting. In Elements I did a little contrast boost and slightly faded the surface under the lime into the background.
So there you go, I am really having fun experimenting with light, so this week I choose my lime photo as my sweet shot for Sweet Shot Tuesdays! Also, don't forget Darcy is hosting a group on Flickr for those who are attempting to complete a 52 week project. I'm one of the moderators, so if you've already joined the group I may have already left you some love on your photo!
If you have a Yellow Green photo to share you can link it up until Saturday over at Project64's blog.
The new color for week two is Carnation Pink and the linky for it will open up on Sunday, Jan. 16th, 2011. If you need a visual for the color head on over here.
Hope everyone has a great day!
