White Roses and Jewelry
PLAY AROUND WITH INEXPENSIVE JEWELRY!
I got the idea of mixing the roses and the jewelry as I was photographing the roses in the little gold colored vase (or whatever you want to call it).
And since I had the fake pearl necklace and the barrette was also made out of fake pearls.......
Well anyway, I thought the white of it all would look well with the white roses.
I actually used as the background for this picture some dark brown material which has a slight pattern on it. The material is very wide and long - probably about the same size of a twin sized bedspread.
Over a period of several days, I took many different poses of this image. Then what normally doesn't happen did. I had a hard time choosing which image to use. But I finally settled on the above photo.
After I got the image into my computer, I took a very dark background I had created and placed it as a layer on the image. I adjusted the opacity so just a slight amount of the added layer was showing.
Challenge for today:
Why not go to a thrift store and shop around for some inexpensive jewelry you could photograph.
