Shades of Autumn Pinterest Board - it's so awesome to be included in such a great collection of images!!
When I realized the the challenge for this week was white I have to be honest - I freaked out a little. I nearly stopped to pull the weeds on the side of the road just to have something to photograph. This week we went from pretty-fall to ugly-fall in just a day or two. We had a nice little frost and then a hard wind so now all the trees have gone from beautiful to bare. Also, I live in the South. It's not going to snow here until January. At least.
So I gave it a little thought - here is my first attempt for white: marshmallows
Y'all got a sneak peak on Wednesday.
But then I found some more white around my house and neighborhood...
I got this really nice pretty white tone by following a mini-tutorial from Sarah of NapTimeMomTog about Kelvin White Balance. It worked so wonderfully. That is definitely one of the first things I'll be writing about when I write an advanced SLR class.
The bushes outside my house have these odd little white blooms - I have no idea why - but they were fun to photograph.
I have got such bad writers block at the moment. I'm writing a class I'll be offering in February and it's been really intimidating - it's for product photography and while I love this style of photography and I'm really impressed with my student's progress - the ones who are participating in my test-group - I am having a hard time just sitting down and working it out... So I'm procrastinating. I've taken more photos this week than some months entirely. I've cleaned my kitchen - I even pulled the stove out to clean the sides really well. Yeah - that was when I realized I'm just procrastinating. So I went to Wal-Mart and did some grocery shopping. Between you and me - I'm not a huge fan of the fall/winter holidays. I would just as well put a months worth of groceries on the credit card and hole up in my house.
