TAOP: Part 3 ? Colour: Exercise ? Primary and secondary colours ? Violet
January 9, 2012
This is my final post for the colour library exercise on primary and secondary colours – and is the third of the secondaries. A bit more background is in the first post – Primary and secondary colours – Red.
Surprisingly I found some flowers around the duck pond – and more surprisingly one of them was violet. I really had expected to struggle to find something natural for this colour! Unfortunately the shots themselves aren’t exactly master-pieces. Poor focus and pretty poor composition. I was concentrating on just getting the colour, and I didn’t want to kneel down to get a good shot as the ground was soooo cold! Straight away I’d give myself a ‘could do better’ for this.
The closest match here was the over-exposed shot. ISO1000, 1/40s exposure at f/2.8. As you can see, it’s far from the best shot I’ve ever taken!
These were both too dark – and there’s not really much between them (except the shortest exposure is actually in focus)! These were shot at f/5 and f/4.5.
