Pears




In my Be Still 52 class the assignment was ‘organic’, to interpret as we would like.  When I think of organic I automatically think of organic fruits and vegetables, so I bought some pears at the local fruit stand.  I also think of nature, making wood my choice of background. 


I tried and tried to get the color the same in both images for this diptych, I couldn’t do it.  Then I realized with a different point of view and the light hitting the subject differently, it was impossible to get the color exactly the same.  I settled for close.


Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday and the class Be Still 52.  I used Kim’s Lightroom preset darklight, brought some saturation back into the images and other little changes here and there. (Is an image every really finished?)  I textured the images with Kim’s textures colton and dessert.

Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!

  4. I think I love moody better than dreamy images this is so rich and wonderful. Love the bowl so good...and love the imperfections on the pears. Just make the whole image real.

  11. You've captured the organic theme perfectly - the yellow/green of the pears alongside the wooden bowl - so lovely. While I am not in the Be Still class, I'm certainly learning a lot just by seeing the work of Kim's students. Thanks!

  20. These are just perfect! Pears are such a wonderful photo prop. Yes, it's amazing how changing our perspective with our cameras also changes the light and the tones of our photos. It's sometimes frustrating but these are all lovely.
