Happy Friday, Everyone by rockinrobyn

Happy Friday, Everyone

Yes, I put a vase of fake flowers in my white bathtub to take this picture. 365 is driving me a little coo-coo! :)
Great shot, and I like your idea of using the bathtub as a backdrop!

Happy Friday to you as well! Great photo. Very clever to use your bathtub.

What a great way to achieve negative space. . chalk up another new idea for sharing, Robyn!
July 20th, 2012  
ok, so let me get this correct. you put the vase in the bathtub and that is how you got all the negative space? what a very creative idea! awesome little shadow. i am looking at the flowers and if you had not actually told me they are fake i don't know that i would have actually have known. happy friday to you, too!
July 20th, 2012  
love the simplicity!

@catsmeowb Thanks, Camille! I set the vase on the edge of the tub, with the white tub wall as the back drop. I upped the exposure and highlights, cooled the color tones a bit, and then increased the saturation a touch. If I hadn't played with the exposure, you would have seen the built in soap holders on the tub wall. On my phone, this looks funny - I see a halo around the flowers -- but on my original photo it looked o.k.

I think it's a great idea!! I get some great light in our big jetted tub because of the windows right above it...might have to try this sometime! :)

Gorgeous shot, so simply set up but SO effective
July 20th, 2012  
so clean and crisp, I love it! Would make an awesome greeting card front.
July 20th, 2012  
thank you for the tips on how you did this. very interesting. the whole white balance thing is very difficult, i think.
July 20th, 2012  
@catsmeowb yea, I'm not sure on white balance or how the csc challenge will go for me. I started to correct myself on my last response ... I could have just cloned out distractions rather than upping the exposure, but I really wanted more of a bright, high-key effect so that is why I did it that way, too.

Nice and simple perfect composition with a splash of color.
July 20th, 2012  
Very cool...I really, really like how you've done this.
July 20th, 2012  
Haha! Love the admission and the photo - great work!
July 20th, 2012  
Oh, how beautiful! Love the simplicity!
July 20th, 2012  
Love this Robyn, i really like the simpliciy and all the negative space =)
July 20th, 2012  
Great high-key shot.
Working in the bath! Now that is a great idea for high-key shots. Well done.
July 20th, 2012  
I love it!
July 20th, 2012  
Oh yes, 365 has made me do some crazy things as well, but I think it helps unleash some hidden creativity. Who would ever have thought that fake flowers and a bathtub would look so good?! Great shot!
July 20th, 2012  
Wow I really like, This!
July 20th, 2012  
Super creative... I'm going to have to try!
July 20th, 2012  
Love the high-key feel, especially the light reflecting on the right side of the vase!
July 20th, 2012  
Simple .... yet beautiful. Love the "white space!" Perfection.
July 20th, 2012  
Happy friday for you too!!! very nice picture!
July 20th, 2012  
Oh welcome to the world of coo-coos
July 21st, 2012  
This looks like something from an ad...very professional looking on the all-white background.
July 21st, 2012  
Love the white contrast, lovely shot. I think this place is sending me a little silly too. This is very creative would have never guessed it was in a bathtub
July 21st, 2012  
Not coo coo at all, this is creative! Love the simplicity and purity of this!
July 21st, 2012  
I've used my bathtub too! But not as well as this. Very well done.
July 21st, 2012  
This coo coo is too too cool cool
July 21st, 2012  
Rob
Wow! Coo coo is infectious! Great shot!
July 21st, 2012  
My bathroom features a lot in my photos when I want a white background too! And it's perfect for this vase and flowers with gorgeous colour!
July 21st, 2012  
Wow, this is good, and I agree should be on the front of a very special card, I would buy.
July 21st, 2012  
Simply lovely!
