Susan, over at Sunflower Status, shared a fabulously fun activity that creates color palettes from photos. She has the process down to an art and has created some stunning color palettes from her photos. Exactly how to develop the palettes comes from Rita at The Coffee Shop Blog. Rita is sharing her color palette templates and tutorial on how to use them with anyone who wants to
steal rip-off borrow enjoy them. It took a little finagling of her instructions, but I finally made one work.
There’s a little story behind this shot, which aside from all the shots of Peanut, is one of my favorites. When on vacay in Cancun with Entrepreneur, Army Wife and Peanut, aspiring businessmen/women would approach us and ask if we’d like our picture taken with their parrot…or iguana…or snake…or monkey…etc. And just so you don’t think I completely took advantage of the situation, we paid for Army Wife and Peanut to pose holding a couple of parrots while poolside one day. Not once, but twice. But I had something different in mind.
So I stalked them on the beach. Nonchalantly. With my zoom lens.
And got this one.
And now it’s my first photo palette. I’m sure more will follow.
Thanks Rita and Susan! Now, I won’t get much else done during the days. Self-control? Yeah, I know. I’m working on it.
