Get pushed - take a picture white on white + macro alphabet 'f' for feather

Sorry it's taken so long @northy I had to give up with the idea of doing film noir but I loved looking at all the images! I enjoyed playing around with the other option you gave me which was white on white. I realised that I had to overexposure quite abit because of the whites in the picture - by nearly 1 1/2 stops. I was abit confused about which white balance to use and ended up going with the auto option as I didn't want the picture to be blue. I had a mixture of changing natural lights and when the sun went in I had to use the flash which then threw shadows.

I found the editing quite tricky as I needed some contrast and tone in the picture, I am still not sure about it, but here it is anyway. :)

Here we are @northy thanks for the push and sorry again for the lateness. I really would appreciate any thoughts and opinions on how I could have done it better.

Great shoot. Don't forget to tag it if it was for this weeks challenge đŸ˜€

This is lovely! White on white is difficult and I often resort to cheating - converting to black and white so as to eliminate any colour cast... And yes, white can throw off the camera's metering, so over exposing makes sense (I often do this when shooting outside in winter)... I think you did great here!

Hi Rob @johnston1364 thanks, no this challenge was set for last month but I couldn't complete it because of flashofred, so I won't tag it for this week. The silhouette challenge was for this week :)

This looks like it was really challenging! You did a great job getting the feather to show up on all that white :-)

Awesome picture! As I understood it took you some time, but you got everything in there! White on white, it's a macro and you did the f!!

You have done this beautifully. Love the rich of lace & softness of the feather.
