So summer is pretty much over, I’ve passed leprechauns along the way and now I’ve reached the end of the rainbow! My photo challenge to take images of each of the seven colours, a week at a time, is complete.
It’s been an interesting challenge as it has made me appreciate the colours that we take for granted around us everyday. For the most part, I purposely only photographed mundane objects – individually the images are nothing special. However, when put together in a collage, I hope they represented each shade well.
As promised, I’ve now incorporated all the hues together to give a rainbow effect. It also seemed a good post to include as my entry to Cee’s photo challenge – The colours of seeing. I was trying to look for colour after all!
The first image I created using BeFunky collage maker. I chose to only use the 6×6 grid, but could have created a larger one to use all my images if I’d wanted.
Next, using a free online photo editing software, I used the kaleidoscope filter to create the patterns. I could have seriously wasted an entire day playing around with this (I probably did lose at least two hours!), but I finally settled on a pattern that reminded me of a lotus flower and another that looks like a spider in a web. Isn’t technology marvellous?! I may now have to go back and kaleidoscope each week’s entry. 🙂
It would also be a very easy project to do with children, whether at home or in the classroom, that could be printed out / made into canvasses or cards to give as gifts or just as a funky piece of art for their rooms!
I’d like to thank everyone who submitted their own versions to The Rainbowfication Chronicles – it would be lovely to see your full spectrum versions and whether you have any other ideas for ways to edit them creatively. Just remember to leave a pingback in the comments! And be sure to check out earlier editions of the Rainbowfication Chronicles to see how I built the final spectrum.
Next week, Wednesday Lensday will be back to black (and white) with monochrome images, but I’ll certainly be making sure there are some splashes of colour from time to time!
If it’s raining, look for rainbows.
If it’s dark, look for stars!
