Like everyone else, I’ve been home bound and boredom’s forced me to look for different creative outlets. Lately, I’ve been playing with photo editing and media creation tools. Learning new tools while manipulating old photos can while away serious chunks of time. Familiarity does speed things up and after a few tries, my reworked photos have turned out better than I had imagined.
For this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge I ask you to share a photo and post where you RE-IMAGINE ORANGE.
What does that mean? It’s up to you. It could be old photos re-worked to highlight the color orange. Or pictures of oranges set in unusual repose. Or a composition with an orange colored background. Even a post on your favorite episode of Orange is the New Black.
In this challenge, feel free to use your own photos or free stock images (with attribution of course.) When using stock images, I will look for your personalizing touch. A story. An anecdote. A re-imagined visual collage. Your imagination. Your call.
If you dabble in Lightroom, consider playing around with filters and colors. In my featured photo, I desaturated all the colors except orange. The effect is quite dramatic, don’t you think?
RE-IMAGINE what you’d normally post for Friendly Friday and make it relevant to the color-fruit-title ORANGE. I look forward to seeing your submission!
Remember to include a link to this post and a comment below, so that I and others can find your response.
This week’s challenge to RE-IMAGINE ORANGE goes up to Thursday, after which Amanda at StPA will post a new Friendly Friday challenge.
