As I said earlier this week, I’m exploring various art forms through challenges on various blogs. Friday is going to be my art day! (That’ll get them all done in a day for y’all who don’t give a hoot about them!) I’ll be posting several times on Fridays with each of my different challenge submissions.
My first challenge is from The Artists Play Room and it was to create something with “turquoise and lime”. Teri the jewelry maker immediately thought of turquoise jewelry and Teri the cook thought of Key Lime Pie (or maybe it was Teri the hungry who thought of that pie…).
But anyway… as soon as that pie crossed my mind I knew I wanted to do a still life. Outside of the trip to the grocery store, it didn’t take long to bring together the elements I wanted to use.
Then I had a bit of fun playing.
These two I tried out the ‘vignette’ setting.
And on these two I rotated them so they were a bit off level.
This effect is “soft focus”.
And this one is “soften”.
I played around with other angles and settings until my stomach started growling. Photo shoot over! It was time for that piece of pie!
Hope there are more challenges like this in the future! ;-)
