Shades of White

This is my second attempt at posting this – very frustrating as I’d done the whole thing and even posted it, but there was a long, long blank insert on it that I couldn’t get rid of. So I had to delete it all …. apologies to anyone who’d already viewed it!!  Let’s hope this one will be successful cos I might just go out and shoot myself !

I really like doing white on white, high key pics – especially as I seem to have accumulated a collection of white ‘objects d’Art’ – posh word for bric-a-brac ! Actually, some pieces are really nice ….  this little lady was a recent birthday pressy  and the cup and saucer are Coalport ‘Country Ware’.

Still Life with SwanDeer and Teacup 2

 

It’s gawn ‘n put ’em in the wrong order now!!  The Deer pics are supposed to follow each other and the Swan with border should’ve been 3rd – grrrr   Ne’ mind eh?  Lol !

White on White

I haven’t posted here for a couple of weeks or so, as my time seems to be taken up more with my Flickr and Viewbug pages. But the future plan is to pare back a bit.  As I get older I can easily get overwhelmed with all the available outlets and info that our on-line world affords us.  So, employing a bit more discipline to myself is the answer I think.

I’m thinking of leaving Facebook too as there is so much stuff they bombard you with – including  selecting and re-posting your very old posts that they title ‘memories’.  Plus, I’m inundated lately with ‘friend requests’ from people I don’t know. I don’t like to be impolite and reject them, but I haven’t the patience to keep looking up profiles etc to sus them out !

I find that the updates and changes that all of these sites do, that are meant to improve our ‘experience’ and make computer life easier, are really a big con. I believe they do it for their own benefit to allow for more and more adverts and the like [ I appreciate they have to make money].  Anyway – I’m too old to be bothered with it all any more …..

I will simply stick with my WordPress photo blog and Flickr. I especially like Flickr because they have special photography interest groups to join. As my favourite genres are still life, flowers and macro  this suits me fine as I can hitch up and share with like- minded enthusiasts

Well, it’s time to post my pics for this post :

Paper Play

 

 

Abstract

It was a very rainy day yesterday, so I decided to play around with some sheets of white printing paper. It was an idea I picked up from one of my many photography books.  The paper is stapled at strategic  points to get the required rhythmic patterns .  I then used my Paintshop Pro to soften this one.

blush

This one I had fun with using a plug-in called Virtual Photogapher. The effect is called ‘blush’.  Although it’s a one-click job you can also use a slider [ or in my case Paintshop] to further adjust.

And lastly – this effect is called dreamy.
