Bookography (25)

Bookography

Bookography is a fun new way to share the beauty of books with photography. Take a picture with the book being the focus or inspiration and share the picture(s) you have created for the week.

Book
Wizard of Oz
The Emerald City

I have been wanting to take a picture of one of my Oz books. At first I had no idea what I was going to do, but as I was looking through the book I remembered the reason why the Emerald City is emerald is because the citizens wear tinted glasses and the city is actually white. When I was taking the picture I figured I would tint the picture green. As I was playing around with the photo I decided to try the vignette option (black border) and I liked the look of it and it made it almost look like a cut emerald.

If you would like to participate please do. I will post my Bookography post each week on Wednesdays. I would love if you would link back to my blog and share your own link in the comments.

Oh that's gorgeous. You did an amazing job. I love the oval shape that's the focus and then the green tint makes it really and truly feel like the Emerald City.

I would love to participate in your weekly posts on one of my blogs if I just could take a decent picture. They're either too blurry or just don't make sense. My minds eye and reality are always two very different things.

Awesome as always!

@Rachel Thanks, I really liked how this one turned out since it just happened to work that way while I was in the post process. It if fun how things can evolve all on their own.

@Mindy The green is what makes the picture, I love it :)

@Rachel you should try it sometime. Just keep practicing till you get it. Looking back at my 1st ones I don't like all the finished product. I think I am going to redo a few of them over and I think they will be even better.
