Color Series: The In Betweens Day 5

Rain Drenched White Iris

This is a great example of when white isn’t actually white. When I did the white series, I ended up having to just go with a few that I really didn’t want to include because they didn’t hit a true enough white for me, but I realized after I started the series that way too many that I thought would work still bothered me because they had just a tint of color.

On this iris, the left petals tint towards a very pale purple and right ones have tones of yellow and green. Both are pretty faint, but noticeable. It’s funny because when you are standing back and looking at this flower, it is absolutely white. It isn’t until you get closer, say when trying to do a macro photo, that you really start to see the colors.

When I started this series, I knew I’d have a few colors I struggled with, but I really wasn’t expecting white to be one of them.

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

    1. Absolutely! It is one of the reasons why I love macro photography so much. You get to see some of those things that you may never have noticed before. Color is definitely one of those areas. My brain just naturally tries to break colors down into their primary or secondary colors.
