as we practice to deceive - blue!

hmmm... the blue didn't work out quite as i had hoped... this will definitely be a challenging month... i am not sure that "blue" and "indigo" are going to end up looking all that different...

anyhoo... blue... for rainbow month... and a selfie for the 52 portraits of me thing... this week being "deception"
Oooh, good one!

Lovely bit of blue but still feels like b&w ;)

That blue's very good against the black background.

I like it!

My problem Northy! For me it’s a
Linguistic and cultural doubt. I checked Google and under the term indigo there are blues an what I would call violet and purple.

Nice shot, looking forward to seeing your rainbow month.

I love the image and the blue is perfect here but if you want to be sure it's indigo, you can do a colour correction in PS using the RGB colour code for indigo which is 75,0,130

@vignouse hmmm.... except that looks completely purple to me... i wish i could figure out how the RGB colour codes fit in with the colour balance layer... the numbers don't seem to work there which is frustrating...

And that is why I was pleased to see the alternate layout of blue, purple, pink. I can’t tell indigo from blue and purple to save my soul. The only other time I tried this I made Wednesday a column of B&W and then continued with primary & secondary colors.

@northy Just a thought - are you using a colour corrected monitor screen?
posted March 4th, 2018  
@vignouse probably not, but I don’t think that’s the issue... I have trouble with colours generally.... and when I compare the PS indigo based on the hex number to colours that look indigo to me they are very different...
