Make a photograph that features white in a dominant manner. Use a white subject. Blow out the sky. Use your imagination.
I have ended up with two versions of the same picture and can’t decide which one is better. I’d love to hear opinions in the comments. This first one is what I tweeted to Daily Shoot.
I took this photo with my phone’s Vignette Demo app using the monochrome filter, which I’d never used before. As usual, I took several shots around the pool area, feeling very self conscious and trying not to look too weird. Although there were a couple other shots I thought were neat, I knew this was the one I’d use for the Daily Shoot because I not only like the lines, but I also like the fact that I’d caught the little boy in my frame on accident.
I knew that I wanted to mess around with Photoshop again, since I hadn’t altered any of the Daily Shoots in a while, nor had I felt very good or creative about them, and I imagined that what I changed would be the water. So the above version is what I went to the lens imagining I’d create.
The version below is without the colored water. Just the little boy in the red pants, water color left out to emphasize him.
