I’m involved in a blog carousel with some other photographers. It’s a way for us to push ourselves creatively and have a little fun by allowing our readers to visit other blogs in the carousel.
Make sure to check out the link at the bottom of this post to continue on and see the other blogs that participated!
This month’s topic is Monochrome. I knew that the easiest way to do monochrome would be to turn a photo into black and white, but for some reason the word pink just kept shouting out to me.
I decided to try an idea that I’ve had on my idea list for a couple of years now, some sparkling sugar as lipstick. My daughter has the BEST lips so I knew she would have to be the model.
To keep with the monochrome theme, I painted her nails a glittery pink and grabbed my macro lens and off we went.
Looking at the images afterwards surprised me. My absolute favorite image for this idea was slightly blurred and the sugar crystals were a bit messier than I had planned. But I love it’s messy imperfection.
I also loved another image that I will also post, even though I chose to keep the color intact. I sometimes get images of Emma that just shock me. She’s growing up and fast.
