Photography Challenge: White on White

simplicity button photography challenge


01 03 11

This week's suggested theme is White on White. I've been looking forward to this challenge for awhile. I didn't have as much time to get this photo just the way I wanted it to be - I had a lot of ideas, I just ran out of time! (I'm sure none of you know what that's like j/k). Starting with this challenge and running through the rest of the month I'll only have a suggested theme - feel free to link up your favorite photo from the week, even if it's not in my "theme".

The key to good white on white photos is paying close attention to light and lines. You want to make sure that your white balance is set properly you may even want to set a custom white balance. When I am doing a white on white shot I tend to go for a slightly over-exposed look - under exposed white ends up just looking gray.

I edited my shot with a free action from Paint the Moon called "Strawberries and Cream" (you can grab her newest freebie on the Paint the Moon Facebook page

I can't wait to see your wonderful photos!! Don't forget to grab my NEW button!
