2016—’Tis The Season For Yellow?
The December meeting at the Placer Camera Club was a “theme night” and the theme was “yellow,” an unusual theme for this season and time of year but to me, a very welcome diversion from the ubiquitous Christmas kitsch. I found a single Rio Samba rose remaining on one of the rose trees in front with backlit petals that intrigued me. I wanted to feature the backlighting and this rose was kind of on its last legs so I used my macro lens wide open for a shallow depth of field so that just parts of the petals are in focus. Oh, and I had a little help from Nik’s Color Efex Pro 4 to bring out some of the details.
