White...The Friday Photo Challenge

The Photo Challenge this week was to photograph something White.  Of course this was a wide open subject and I wanted there to be a lot of freedom on this one.  The varying shades of white are so interesting to study, and I thought it would be fun to see all the different Whites that you captured.


I chose to do a vignette of whites in the bathroom.  A textured white towel, a white candle, soap and white hyacinth.

I did discover that white gets really washed out if you use a flash, so these were done with the manual setting.  I tried to capture the depth of that engraving in the soap bar.

The one below is a bit overexposed, although I like the brightness.  I am finding that I like photos a bit overexposed.  Does anyone else find this with their own shots?

For next week, I thought we would photograph something dear to our hearts....a PET.  If you don't have a pet, perhaps you can find a cute dog out on a walk....most owners would love their pets picture taken.  But this is not just a "show off your pet" photo entry.  Try and get an interesting shot.  Pretend you are a professional photographer and you have to do a pet portrait.  Just like with human portraits, photographers are now having to think outside the box and get creative with their subjects.

I look forward to seeing all of the entries.....

  1. Love the soap shots and yes, I tend to "play" with exposure often to see the different intensity of colors in the same photograph! Next week should be entertaining for us here as we have an English Bulldog who does NOTHING! LOL. Have a great week and thanks for these assignments, they are a highlight of the week.

  7. I love your shots of the soap, all of them.

    I'm no photographer and don't seem to have that flare for taking pictures. I point and click and hope for the best!

    I do love looking at all of your photos though.

  8. Love your photos. What a gorgeous bar of soap and I loved how you styled everything. It is surprisingly hard to arrange a bunch of random items and have them look cohesive and pretty. Well done and thanks for hosting.
