I took these shots around 4:30 in the afternoon when the sun is lower and the light is warmer. In the winter in my house, the sunshine pours in and splashes across entire rooms. It’s a real mood booster and I’m always expressing gratitude for it (even though it shows the dust … oh my … the dust …).
So that’s what I love about these shots – the warm sun and how it makes me feel.
Even though it’s Texture Tuesday, I didn’t use a texture. But don’t worry – I used Kim’s LR preset “kk_berrily”. I love this preset but it doesn’t work on everything – it tends to flatten colours and tones. I think it worked here because of the sunlight. Then I ran an action from Florabella called Warm Vintage which I’ve seriously become addicted to.
Have you ever run an action and then picked it apart to see how they do it? Well, the Warm Vintage action de-saturates, adds warm tones, adds a subtle bright haze, and then a warm bluish tone. Knowing that has led me to try writing some of my own actions – they don’t always turn out, but it’s a great way to learn.
Today I’m off to get my haircut! woo hoo, do I need a “do” or what! The dust will just have to wait!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
