View Full Interactive Version Of This Page : How do you get Bullseye Gold Purple to photograph right?
I made these really pretty floral lentils and would like to auction them, but I can't get them to look purple to save my life. I have probably taken over 70 pictures of them in all different lighting situations and I am so mad now that I am about to throw the beads out the d@mned window. I have messed with my photo editing software too and it hasn't helped much. This seems to be the only color that I can never get to look right in a picture...
Angie, I'm not sure what this color is supposed to look like, but gosh....those are a beautiful color and design! But I understand why you're frustrated because you don't want to feel like you are misrepresenting the color in the photo.
Hopefully someone who is familiar with this color can help! :)
Thanks Lisa :biggrin: I finally just gave up and started the auction anyway and explained that it is a true purple color and not the icky blue it looks like. Hope the winner isn't disappointed with them!
well i was outbid on them so that is always good for you right?
they are beautiful!!!
Did you have only Flourescent or Incandescent lights on - If you have both on at once purple changes color - Something about digital photography and color spectrum - One messes with the blue - one with red and purple looks bad
Thank you, Sondra! No one says that you can't try again, LOL!
As far as the lighting, I tried outside in the shade, under florescent and a mixture of daylight/incandescent. I finally decided that life is too short to keep messing with it :confused:
But, if there is someone that has a tried and true method of getting it to look purple...I am way curious about how to do it.
They look purple to me. I know what you mean though, I can never get ink blue to look purple in the photos. Did you try direct sunlight? I found that last week direct sunlight gave me a better purple with my ink blue. It made my feel better when my dad told me that even with regular film, sometimes purple doesn't turn out right.
