Texture and colouor

I decided to put this photo up for today as I took it this morning in my room. It is for a photo exercise that I am doing for class but I really love the vibrant colours and the texture of the cup and the cushion.
Remember when choosing colours that a colour that is opposite to the colour of your object on the colour wheel will help your object 'pop' out!
Also when taking a picture in which you are comparing texture make sure both the objects are in focus. As you can't compare if you can't see :)
Have a fabulous day!

Happy 2010!

Now I know it's been a while but yes I am still alive! My holiday was spent in the 'lovely' town of King Williams Town (oh and by lovely I do mean deathly boring). But the good news is that by staying at home the whole holiday and not spending money I managed to buy a new camera!!!!! and yes I am totally doing a happy dance right now! haha

I am so excited for this year as not only do I have a new camera, but I have also started the photojournalism part of my degree at university! I have actually spent a good portion of my afternoon outside working on a framing exercise for class on Monday.

Oh and I have decided to do a 'One photo a day' project. Basically it means that I will take at least one interesting photo a day and post it on my blog for your entertainment ( and my practice).

As soon as my internet at home is up and running again which should be later this week I will start the project - so watch this space!!! haha
