For this workshop, I concentrated on using the white balance option and tried out all the possibilities on offer:
Cloudy option, not bad...
This one's too green!
This is isn't in focus, is it?
This one seems a bit blue to me.
Don't like the colours here, either.
1) to only take photos using natural light. Can't stand the effect the flash has on colours and am not equipped to take photos without a flash (that means my hand moves too much!)
2) to try and take pictures outdoors (if the weather is good enough)
3) to concentrate on the background. Once your work is finished, you have to find a good way of setting it off and I'm now playing with the idea of using interesting backgrounds that make the photo a bit more personal. This idea has brought me to take my latest photos:
I'd never thought about it before, but there are so many interesting details and textures in the houses around where I live. Hope nobody minds if I "borrow" them for my backgrounds!
I'm very happy to be able to link up with Beth's workshop at Plum and June to see how my new goals will develop and read everybody's inspiring posts.
