"In Autumn, don't go to the jewelers to see gold; go to the parks."-Mehmet Murat ilda
Welcome to fall...sunflowers, pumpkins, cooler days, longer nights, and oh! the colors are glorious.
I am linking up to Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen's website. Head on over there...she has a free tutorial, and two textures.
Enjoy the fall pictures...
|Textures: kk_pumpkin grunge, softlight 39%; 2 lil' owls: Happy song square, multiply 67% masked off parts of the flower|
One of our challenges for our Photo club was to use artificial lighting in a photo. I love the glow and ambiance of candle light, so I thought I would try something fall-ish with it. What could be more fall-ish than a pumpkin. Here's my first attempt.
|I have the candles and the pumpkins sitting on a mirror.|
|Love this! She was pretty content right where she was...and stayed until I shooed her away for another idea.|
|Next I added a sunflower, and crab apples to the top of a mirror. I thought the reflections would look nice. They did. I like this a lot too.|
|I just kept rearranging things, and liking everything...when to stop...I do get carried away sometimes.|
She really liked the string of lights. Too much in fact.
|My photo taking just got a lot harder, because my intruder here wanted to play with, and snack on the lights. I finally had to banish her to the bedroom. Sorry, Maggie...|
|My favorite capture of the shoot. I love the bokeh of the lights in the background.|
|Then I went outside...no artificial light here!|
Even the butterflies have fall-ish colors...
