I found this outfit last January during the peak of the shows — during my first photowalk.  It didn’t quite fit any of the themes (or me)… but I’m glad since I think I’ve learned a few tricks and seen some good ideas about post-processing that I didn’t know in January.

In Aperture, I burned and gave definition to the glitter, saturated the red and yellow hues, desaturated the blue hues. Considering this photo was taken mid-day (I was such a amateur back then!), I’m pleased the way the photo came out.

My favorite part of the photo… when I took it and still now… is the sign for plus sizes right next to this skimpy little outfit!  Talk about a fantasy!

I may be stretching the theme a bit here.  You do see how the hummingbird’s back glitters, don’t you?

This hummingbird is a lucky shot… I was in Aperture priority because I wasn’t expecting him and was working on the some flowers in and out of Super Macro mode.
