My Nude Year: Day 183 of 365

Over done??? I realize that some ideas and concepts in photography have been done to death but it doesn’t mean they aren’t fun to try. Shannon and I have had this concept on the list of photos to complete since the very start of the project. Tonight seemed like as good a time as any to give it a shot. We actually took the photo with Shannon facing forward and backwards. I really liked the one in which she was facing the camera and it was the photo we planned on for tonight but I couldn’t seem to get the colors to work for me. I dropped the saturation to zero on the umbrella and it still appeared to be a greenish blue hue. This image however the umbrella came out exactly as I wanted it, pitch black. The other photo may be revisited once the project has been completed and I will see if I can get it to look the way I wanted but until then we will go with this one. The other image will be included in the July set once the month is over for your review.

I have a question that maybe you could help me out with. If you have purchased one of our sets I’m curious to know if you agree with the final photo we selected for the book or would you have selected another version. If you have an answer we would love to hear it. You can contact us by email and let us know.

Over the halfway point today,
