I thought and thought and thought about what to do for this challenge. Yesterday, I decided to use a real orange and orange juice. I had collected some oranges that I got from work. If you get a healthy choice meal you get a free fruit so I had be saving my oranges to work with, except someone in my household LOVES oranges - to eat! *looks over at the 6 year old* lucky for me she left 2.
Finally I decided on a few things to do with the oranges - but - nothing that I thought would grand. Actually, I was not thrilled with my editing. I don't know anything about editing really. I really need a PSE program to use. *Suggestions? Anyone? What one to get? I have CS5 on my computer but it wont take the serial number. Boo! Right as soon as I figure out how to delete all of it from my MAC it is gone.
So - beware - Here are MANY many orange photos (with editing problems).
This was one of my hair brained ideas.
Oh and I forgot to say I had major focusing issues. I was using my 50mm f1.8. I used the manual focus and blur. I ended up using AUTO on some of these shots. Shame on me.
And I also wonder if I over edit photos sometimes. I think the SOOC is way better than this.
Then I wonder if I need my eyes checked and new glasses. This is just - a bad edit job.
Sooo - I thought I may get a bit creative and then I tried this.
but I do think the angle is all off. It could because it kept falling. Oy!
I thought that maybe a texture would work. Yeah, it didn't. See I need PSE so I can properly do layers and textures.
I was so running outta ideas. So this one is a messing around shot!
Soooo - that made this photo the choice for the ORANGE Challenge.
Head on over and check out everyone else's Orange interpretations. I promise - it will be worth the click.
