Picture Perfect~~~Contrast

The Picture Perfect theme this week is "Contrast".  When I looked up contrast in photography, this is what I found:

"Contrast within photography can be found in a picture with light and dark colors, black and white high contrast photos, or a complimentary color scheme image."

This is a picture of my daughter, Tamara.  Affectionately known as Tee.  It's one of my favorites.  On this day, contrast was in my favor.  The color of her shirt, her skin tones, the background at the lake and her eyes.  To me, everything came together to bring out the sparkle in her eyes.

  4. When you add the photos to your album, do you upload them "for web" or as high resolution files?

  6. Either one will work Lindy. Mine is set to high resolution mosts of the time because family comes here to copy and print the pictures.

  7. Thank you for all your help Linda! After a few false starts I finally figured it out - I needed a mouse so I could "right click" as I own a Mac, I could only get small versions on the blog page otherwise.
