Today, for the Challenge Your Camera theme, we’re to be in the kitchen photographing………as I receive the notices of the challenge at 10:30 PM or so (due to time differences) I was in my kitchen snapping away around 11PM…….No cooking at that time, mind you, so it never crossed my mind to photograph a gadget or appliance! I went for the decor! My husband came in and thought I’d gone nuts! (It’s not the first time)
I decorate my rooms for the Seasons! Especially the kitchen……….but I have just started taking down my Valentine decor and moving on to the Spring Decor….. so here is a little bunny …….
My kitchen colors are gray, white and black……so to play, I thought I would take the color photos and convert them to shades of black and white…..AND Dr B you will NEVER believe what I discovered! Can you see it in this photo? When I went to convert the photo, it left the candle in color! A Color Splash! Yeah! There were all kinds of black and white shade filters to choose from and one did this! Hallelujah! There is an easy way to Color Splash!
Then I went for the lantern ……….in color…….I just have to take the snow out of the bottom of the lantern and replace it with grass and add a plant into the parsley crock…….replacing the red flowers. you see…. and add some more bunnies, and on and on …………….
Over to the cottage shelving in another part of the kitchen……..all the red will be replaced this week with pastel colored stuff!
And here is the same photo in another Black and White filter………no color splash on this one!
I may come back at the end of the week and update this post once I have all my Spring goodies on display…….That post will likely be on the Features of your posts for the next week! Thank you Philosophy in Photography for suggesting this theme!
Yep, I did come back …….I don’t have Spring decor done yet, but if you would like to see some of my decor for Christmas and Valentine’s Day that I did…look Here
Having way loads of fun with your challenge Dr B ……..its like a chocolate box…….you never know what you are going to get!
I hope you have enjoyed my KITCHEN!
Won’t you join Dr B and The Buddha Walks Into a Wine Bar for the latest challenge? He writes………..
Photography is one of those activities we can all have fun with and blog about, at home, in the garden, walking the streets, in the countryside, in a museum or gallery ….. the opportunities are endless. You can be a wizard or a novice with a camera or a smartphone, or a crafty manipulator with Photoshop, or Lightroom or Snapseed. It really doesn’t matter how you create your image because in the end it is a work of art, a creation, a memory, and possibly a source of inspiration to others. Blogging your images is easy too, few words needed, let the picture tell the story. And, very importantly in these strange times, it can give us a distraction, a positive focus, connect us with others, and build a community via our blogs. So why not join in, start snapping and sharing with me.
Each week Dr B is selecting a single theme to point his camera at or display a few photos from his collection as a way to brighten up the week as we enter a new year, which we all hope will be brighter than the last. If you would like to join him in #challengeyourcamera then here’s what to do:
1. Follow him to discover the weekly theme he has chosen.
2. Select a few photos related to the week’s theme
3. Post your own photos that week, any day you like.
4. Include a caption with each photo so we know what/where it is
5. Include a ping back/link to his blog in your post so that he is notified, can follow you back and can appreciate and comment on your choices.
6. Include the tag #challengeyourcamera
1. He will follow you back
2. He will encourage other posters to follow you
3. He will list each blogger in my weekly post
