This week's theme is about Blue. Did you know that blue is by far the most popular color out there? - according to the website "Empower with Color Psychology.com", "Blue color is one of trust, responsibility, honesty and loyalty...". No wonder it is frequently used in presentations and marketing.
But wait a minute, you say, what about the expression, "Feeling Blue"? Well, yes, sometimes, we use the word "blue" to describe a state of mind. That's because blue is a cool color and it creates a cold mood - especially in photography. Blue gives a picture a "cold" feel. Just take a look at the two pictures of Blue (That's the name of this Teddy) which I happened to find at the New Thrift Store of the Chequamegon Humane Association which opens today. I was helping with the merchandise when I came across this beautiful little guy. I also came across a set of knives, a brand new shower curtain/rug set, and other miscellaneous stuff - I tell you, that's a dangerous place for me to visit. I probably picked up more stuff than I dropped off, but back to Blue - given this week's subject, I just had to get him.
As you can below, the picture on the left, feels much colder. If you use Lightroom, try changing the Temp or Tint in your photos to create a specific mood. You can change the The entire photo or be more selective by using a brush to affect only those areas you want to change. The photo on the right seems warmer because it's not so blue - both were taken within seconds of each other. You be the judge, which one makes you feel more warm and cozy?
Next, just because they're so darn adorable are Remi, in Remi's World and Mocha as a Cowboy.
I hope you enjoyed this week's very short blog. This blog was created as part of a weekly challenge. Each subject encompassing a new focus or photographic technique or subject.
