Rainbow Month! I did it!! by luvmynynix

Rainbow Month! I did it!!

If you have followed me for any length of time, you know that I am much more comfortable photographing scenes which occur in nature rather that "set ups". This month I decided to do a rainbow month and in the beginning it was a lot harder than I had anticipated. After the first week of running around the house desperately searching for something in a particular color and unceremoniously snapping a picture of it, I decided to revamp the idea.

Looking at the pics I had already taken, I knew that I wanted the whole month of pics to fill the frame and be very singular in color...as singular as possible. After that I went to work looking at some of the people on here that take those types of shots.

Now...by no means...do I think I am an expert at this whole set up business, but once again I am amazed at how much I have learned from this community!!

I am really going to miss this challenge...so much so that I decided to do it again, but with a twist...stay tuned for tomorrow....I hope you enjoy it!!!

well done Laurie - a fabulous month of photos and a learning curve to boot ------yay!
February 28th, 2014  
Great idea!! Love all the colors!
February 28th, 2014  
Wow, they look great like this, look forward to the next month.
February 28th, 2014  
They look awesome. I love that you have a colour for each day of the week! And they certainly fill the frame, which as you say is what you were after. Well done. I look forward to tomorrow's posting!
PS I also did a month of colour in January but I'm not sure I was a focused as you! ( http://365project.org/dibzgreasley/365/2014-01)
February 28th, 2014  
@dibzgreasley Thank you! I love your month...especially the last pic tying it all together with the colorful flags!!
February 28th, 2014  
That is so cool! What a great learning experience, and it made a very beautiful rainbow at the end. Some month I'd love to try the same thing. This is going in my favorites.
February 28th, 2014  
Love this looking forward to seeing the twist :)
February 28th, 2014  
Congrats! It looks gorgeous!
February 28th, 2014  
Wow! This whole thing looks pretty incredible!!!!!!!!! You made amazing job!!! Accept my applause and admiration!!
February 28th, 2014  
Well done.
February 28th, 2014  
this is fantastic idea - I am pretty uncomfortable setting up a shot too .. but this inspires me to give it a shot ... Fav
February 28th, 2014  
Whoa! That's a whole month of awesome! We'll done!
February 28th, 2014

That is fantastic! Job well done. That must have taken a ton of planning. I'm lucky to think ahead 1 day. Congrats!!
February 28th, 2014  
So beautiful! ! Fav
February 28th, 2014  
This is fantastic! You did such a wonderful job...love it
February 28th, 2014  
@dgrynn After that first week, the "scene took a little planning, but not too much... I pretty much hunted through A's toys once a day for the perfect color item! lol So glad you like it!
February 28th, 2014  
Fabulous. I want to do that with my b&w, but my computer won't let me do screen shots. I'll have to log onto my hubby's computer to do it.
February 28th, 2014  
This is so fabulous; enjoyed to tour of the larger shots too; my fav's were the fisherprice teacup and cake, so cute and the my little pony but at first I thought it was a cloud baby horsey. Very well constructed, congrats on completion and I am intrigued to see what you do next:0)
February 28th, 2014  
Jo
Oh I'm sooo impressed, I have just had a look through your months pics and they are fab, really well done, and as a whole the colours look beautiful....now what?
February 28th, 2014  
Yay, congrats! You've done a really good job with all of those shots....just love how they look as a whole month. I am very impressed. Can't wait to see what you have planned for March :-)
February 28th, 2014  
Love it! Was thinking about something similar for march - inspiring :)
February 28th, 2014  
This is awesome! Great job!!
February 28th, 2014  
You did do it and they are all great ones.
February 28th, 2014  
What a fantastic idea and perfectly executed.
February 28th, 2014  
Fantastic! You did such a great job, and should be very proud! :)
February 28th, 2014  
Amazing job!!! Well done.
February 28th, 2014  
Very cool
February 28th, 2014  
One word - fantastic!!! Great vision, fav for me!
February 28th, 2014  
Ps you have a new follower! Really impressed by your work, I'm glad I spotted this on the trending page :)
February 28th, 2014  
Brilliant, looks fantastic. Fav
February 28th, 2014  
Beautiful!
February 28th, 2014  
Ths is fab - great effort Laurie
February 28th, 2014  
What a fantastic collage. I love the bright rainbow colours and may have to give this another go myself xx
February 28th, 2014  
Congrats! Looks great on the monthly view! This is something I'd love to do, but every time I challenged myself to do a month of something, I failed!
February 28th, 2014  
@scatcat Thanks so much! So glad you like it! Funny you said that...I thought I was going to fail after about a week into it, but then I switched gears and got more and more excited/obsessed with each picture I took! lol
February 28th, 2014  
Beautiful rainbow challenge! Well done!
February 28th, 2014  
Fabulous rainbow! Fav!
February 28th, 2014  
You did a great job and the rainbow looks fantastic.
February 28th, 2014  
This looks amazing. A fav!
February 28th, 2014  
What a great idea. Love this!
February 28th, 2014  
These individual shots really came together for a wonderful collage shot. I had enjoyed the daily ones, but really love this group one. Will be looking to see your next clever idea.
March 1st, 2014  
I just had a look through all the pictures in your Rainbow Month — Wow! You were so creative, determined, and very talented. The final result, that overall view of February, is fantastic! Curious to see what you've got planned as an encore.

Thanks so much for the fav on my macaw photo. RaneBeau (the name he came with, tho I altered the spelling to make it unique) really is a gorgeous bird. He was all kisses tonight before bedtime. Never imagined myself giving a macaw beak a kiss goodnight.
March 1st, 2014  
Your monthly view is fabulous, Girl! A perfect end to the month!
March 1st, 2014  
Bravo---fav:)
March 1st, 2014  
Well you did a great job, and some of them brought out a new you, so it was worth it
March 1st, 2014  
This is awesome work Laurie! It is so beautiful and creative.
March 1st, 2014  
Wow, this turned out amazingly well! The difference in tones between "blue" for example, has been what has always scared me off of trying a challenge like this.
March 1st, 2014  
@archaeofrog Indigo is the one that scared me because I can never tell the difference between blue and indigo. In the end, some are close, but they are all different to some degree. You wouldn't notice individually and in calendar view your eye just looks for the general trend (I think lol)!! You should try it...it was tons of fun!
March 1st, 2014  
So love this! It is quite impressive when you see the series all together! Beautiful job! Can't wait to see tomorrows!! FAV
March 1st, 2014  
Looks pretty. I've enjoyed your month of color as well.
March 1st, 2014  
What a great idea! I love it and I think you have done a fabulous job!
March 1st, 2014  
Congratulations! Lover! Fav!
March 1st, 2014  
This is so amazing! Fav! What a great idea and terrific outcome!
March 1st, 2014

Thank you so much for sticking with this project, watching it unfold and being so supportive along the way!! I am so appreciative of each and every word! It was such a surprise to wake up and see this on the popular page as this is not the kind of shot I think of when I think popular page! It is thanks to all your support!! What a great way to start the day! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can't wait to get started on my rainbow month with a twist...but first a little breakfast! :)

that looks amazing - so pretty
March 2nd, 2014  
This is fantastic, so impressed!
March 2nd, 2014  
Wow, I'm impressed! Now you've got me tempted to try this myself at some point...
March 2nd, 2014  
What an incredible achievement! Many congrats on your creativity and success with this beautiful Feb project.
March 2nd, 2014  
Your rainbow calendar looks great! I did this a while back and really enjoyed it. But I've done SO many monthly challenges I need a break from them (with the exception of Feb. which I committed to last year). Weekly and one shot challenges are good for me right now- but this reminds me of how fun it can be when you have a whole month of colors lining up!
March 2nd, 2014  
wow, that looks so cool. great job!
March 3rd, 2014  
PS Congrats on the PP.
March 3rd, 2014  
This is so very cool, Fav.
