Isn’t color wonderful? Extra Vivid color can turn a plain photograph into something full of life. I love playing with the color settings on my phone camera using the b612 selfie app. I use the setting called Sheep. It makes the colors really bright and vivid and brings out highlights and shadows.
These images come from a series I did. It is photographs of tulle on canvas. I love the way tulle lets you play with color and line. Editing the photos on my phone is satisfying. I create moodscapes out of tulle, glitter, and Swarovski crystal jewels. Soon I will create them out of yarn, pom poms, paint, curling ribbon, tissue, sequins, and other materials. Photographic bright, colorful objects sparks my creativity.
Angelica was so good for her photo shoot the other week, and the photographer, Kierstyn Peterson https://www.facebook.com/KierstynPetersonPhotography/ did a great job.

For the past several years I have labored under the illusion that I was sick of photography. What I have come to realize over the past week is that I am not tired of photography, I am burnt out on photographing people. The only people I love to photograph are family members. I am tired of photographing people and I don’t want to photograph models anymore like I used to.
I love still life shots, nature photography, macro photography, and lifestyle photography. It is not that I am not interested in people, but just that I feel I can say more about the human condition and speak to the soul more by photographing the objects of civilization and the nature that surrounds us than I can by photographing people themselves. It is just my personality.
I am rediscovering my passion for photography and developing a style with my favorite camera and editing apps. I tend to like rich, saturated colors or high contrast black and white. Right now faded vintage looks are really in, but I like bright colors and deep shadows. My style may not be the popular style, and it may not even be correct. But I create images I like. It is Vivienne style photography, sharp and rich. I am working on finding my visual voice. Somewhere along the line I lost it. I think it is because I abused photography for so long, and I let photography abuse me. I took something good, a wholesome art that brought me to God, and I let it tear me asunder. I used good for evil and it chewed me up and spit me out in so many ways.
But that is a topic for another day.
