the chemistry of creativity
Wow Anna, that is a stunning necklace, so many beautiful colours. :)
That's a very lovely piece -- just gorgeous colors.
Oh, WOW! I remember that necklace from your old blog header. Fabulous use of Lensbaby!
Really magic! It's amazing all colors of rainbow you used, just stunning!
Oh my...amazing piece!
Beautiful shots. I love my Lensbaby.
Beautiful art work in this jewellery, Anna - the colour harmony flows so perfectly and the shape is just lovely. A beautiful young woman equals the beauty of your creation, each one enhancing the loveliness of the other. The three compositions are a joy to behold!
Anna, I daresay these are truly your very best.Gorgeous young lady, and your necklace is breathtaking.Happy Sunday to you!xo.
Wonderful colors and beads. A great work. Stunning !Best regards, Synnöve
Wow! - that necklace is just gorgeous. I like the way you've used the Lensbaby for this; it's nicely subtle - it's easy to get carried away and overdo the Lensbaby effect but this works beautifully.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments!!! I really enjoyed making "Radiance", as it was both fun and challenging to work with all that color and try to make successful transitions from warm to cooler colors. I had the perfect model for this, too :) Jen, I love the Lensbaby, also! Gilly, finding the right f/stop seems to be the key for me. These were taken with a Lensbaby Composer at f/5.6. It gave the painterly look that I wanted, but retained sufficient definition in other areas. I used Live View to help get things in focus. I started using LV with all my lenses this summer and boy, is that a big help.
Such unbelievable beauty in your work Anna! It's a real pleasure for my eye to move from one color spectrum to the next, like viewing a beautiful kaleidoscope of jewels. Simply amazing! I've read about using LV to get precise focus, and also tried it a few times. A new adventure for a later time. :)
Anna, these photos, the beadwork, and of course the gorgeous subject are all truly a beautiful work of art! The way you captured the colors and the smoothness of it...amazing like you!
Stunningly beautiful rich palette of color. Yes - magic!
Have missed the photography sites lately as I've been concentrating more on writing poetry but I still love to stop by and see your work. It is the rich color of the robe she wears and the woman's dark hair that provide the frame for the rest of the color and detail. You and your camera found the ultimate model to show off to the world..I love it! Also love that her ethnicity adds to the movement and uniqueness of the photo.
Oh, what a stunning necklace with such a lovely rich color palette! :)Have a lovely day, Anna!
