Photo365 – Day 194 – Indigo

A vase which was as near to indigo as I could find, although the definition of indigo does vary wildly on the internet from a rich blue to a radiant purple. Is this your definition of indigo?  It’s an indigo subject to fit my rainbow theme I’ve been doing within my photo365 project. This is part six of a seven part series.

Taken with the Pentax K-5 and 16-45mm zoom.

Photo365 – Day 181 – Red

A busy old day means I’ve not had much time for my photo365 project and while I’m at home ideas are starting to become a little trickier, I really lacked inspiration this evening and then I thought of another theme. The Rainbow. So I will run a series of the colours starting with red. This is a still life taken of a red vase on a red plate on a red background. It’s also the first very red thing I’ve shot on the Pentax K-5 so I’m pleased it handles a difficult colour better than its predecessors. This is straight out of camera with just a small adjustment to levels.

Photo365 – Day 18 – Light & Shade

As I walked into the home office this morning I was greeted with a low level sun shining through the blinds. Its the first really sunny morning this year and the feeling was good. After I’d done looking at the previous night’s photos in the gallery and my cruise around the site I decided to take a few shots.

I used the red glass vase that was used fro my photo in front of the venation blinds on day 5 And placed it in front of a radiator. The light and reflections was spectacular so I framed up and took this photo. I went on to shoot close ups of the neck against the wall which gave really intense colour reflections. I also shot through the glass and used a wide aperture to throw the view out of focus for a more surreal set.

I hope my Photo365 series is showing you that you don’t have to go far to be creative…it’s just a little imagination needed to spark up some ideas.
