Grace's Blue World
This photograph happened in an unusual way. Stan came out to the house to do some more videos for his teaching project, and I had set up a tungsten light in an umbrella to do the lighting. We were sitting around taking a break during the filming, and Grace jumped up on the radiator to look out the window. It was dusk, and the light outside the window was blue. If I was using a flash as light, the light on Grace would have been more blue. But I was using tungsten light, which is yellow compared to daylight. So Grace was yellow in color because of the light. When I removed the yellow color in the picture to make her fur white again, it just added more blue to the scene. I just love this brilliant blue, which you might even think of an accident. Well, that's how photographs are made sometimes.
