The Gallery #3: Red

17 Mar

I’m not normally a fan of selective colouring but to be honest it didn’t take much! Kathryn’s hair is black, her clothes are black, the stairs are white.

Her boots are red.

For more colour go visit Sticky Fingers

    I really like that! Personally I love colour pops like that when done in the right way. Thats a great photo the way it shows her as a person!

      Thank you – I think my daugher’s going to enjoy the feedback as much as me 🙂

    What a striking picture – how DO you do it?

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:01 pm #

      I take loads of photos and if I’m really really really lucky, one or two of them are no bad 😉

    This looks it belongs in a glossy magazine! What a stylish girl you have.

    Loving your work as always Mrs W x

      Ooh thanks Josie (and she does enjoy a photo shoot) 🙂

    I think this photo is stunning. Your girl is most stylish and the boots are fab!

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:03 pm #

      Thank you 🙂

    Amazing picture there, it is lovely xx

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:27 pm #

      Thank you Kerry 🙂

  6. Lorraine March 17, 2010 at 12:25 pm #

    Really love the pop of colour that the boots give the photo. Great shot.

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:28 pm #

      I actually toned them down a bit they are not so much red as RED!!!! 😉

  7. Trish@ Mum's Gone to March 17, 2010 at 12:33 pm #

    Ah I knew I’d find a good’un on your fab site – as always you don’t disappoint Mrs W.

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:14 pm #

      Aw thanks – I does my best 🙂 Having a 14yo hangong over my shoulder going “Eeew you are NOT showing anyone that” helps in the selection process somewhat.

    Lovely pic, very striking x

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:31 pm #

      Thank you very muchly 🙂

  9. Kelly March 17, 2010 at 1:29 pm #

    I was never that fashionable as a teenager 😉 The photo is great. I am also not a huge fan of selective color, but it really works here.

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:16 pm #

      They are so lucky these days in that “anything goes”. I wonder sometimes if fashionable means mini skirts, fake tan and Jane Nor…. or this…. or that? She weaves her own path through it with the help of some stuff I kept from 20 years ago (just as I did with my Mum’s clothes from the 60s!).

  10. Marylin March 17, 2010 at 1:37 pm #

    Oooh I like it! 😀

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:17 pm #

      You wanna borrow her? She does enjoy this (my boys? not so much…)

  11. Caroline March 17, 2010 at 3:03 pm #

    Great photo, the type I always wish I was clever enough to take!

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:04 pm #

      All you need is a compliant, agreeable and posy teenager – there’s loads of them about 🙂

  12. Nova March 17, 2010 at 3:34 pm #

    Stunning!! I want to be able to take pictures like that.

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:06 pm #

      Thank you… this photo is from a set I took the first day I flipped my camera off the Auto setting, believe me for every good shot there were about 100 totally rubbish ones. I strive to lower that ratio 🙂

  13. Marianne March 17, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    Bloody marvellous, as always. Love checking out your photos 🙂

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:25 pm #

      Thank you so much, y’all are too kind 🙂

  14. Plan B March 17, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    Amazing! It looks like a poster, or an album cover or something…

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 5:07 pm #

      Oooh that one she will like reading 🙂 Thank you!

  15. Chelle March 17, 2010 at 5:51 pm #

    I love your post and your blog. What wonderful photos!

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 7:28 pm #

      Thank you Chelle – I think yours is just about my favourite this week – I keep going back to look and try to figure out where you could possible have been standing when you took it! Is there a viewing pool? The windows on the one at Edinburgh Zoo are completely submerged so you don’t get that waterline – which I just love in your photo – and it doesn’t look like a human swimming pool (all blue) like Edinburgh’s.

  16. Rosie Scribble March 17, 2010 at 5:53 pm #

    Wow! Incredibly striking! And I love red boots.

    • mrsw March 17, 2010 at 7:25 pm #

      Everyone really ought to have at least one pair of high heeled shiny red things don’t you think? 🙂

  17. claire March 17, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

    Love it!

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:53 pm #

      Thankyou! Love your rainbow flowers too but can’t comment since I don’t have any of the IDs your blog requires 😦

      • claire March 18, 2010 at 12:57 pm #

        Thank you. To be honest, i have no idea how blogger works!!

  18. Priness_L_88 March 17, 2010 at 8:14 pm #

    Adore that photo. Especially as initially I thought it was black and white, then I scrolled down and those fantastic red boots jumped out at me!

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

      Thank you. I only really had to fade her skin out a bit to get the black and white look, we’ve both got pretty monotone wardrobes!

  19. Tara@Sticky Fingers March 17, 2010 at 9:32 pm #

    That is your daughter? If she doesn’t ask you to have that enlarged and posted very large on her bedroom wall she is MAD.
    She looks like a pop star. Very very smart. Me likey

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:38 pm #

      Oooh you’ve just given me an idea for her 15th birthday – cheers m’dear 🙂

  20. Brighton Mum-Teenage Angst March 17, 2010 at 9:38 pm #

    Stunning photo! The composition is great and the boots ‘pop’ right out at you.

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:44 pm #

      Thank you – they are so different from teenage me and my teenage friends – we hated cameras – I suspect it’s all to do with having to put up with what got developed rather than the instant gratification of deleting crap photos they have today 🙂

  21. Vegemitevix March 17, 2010 at 10:38 pm #

    What a great picture, this really is quality photography. Have you freelanced professionally? I’ve worked with lots of freelance photographers, and I love your style – the technical stuff is great, the composition is excellent!! Love it.

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:41 pm #

      Me? Heck no! Wouldn’t even know where to start… but I suspect it’s somewhere roundabout getting to stage where at least 1:5 photos are good rather than my current 1:30!!

  22. Barbara March 17, 2010 at 11:10 pm #

    I may just go out and buy a pair of red boots on the strength of that photo. It is amazing. Send it to Fish and see if he’d like to use it as an album cover – I bet he would.

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:42 pm #

      Funny thing – all his solo albums have had his own fizzog on the cover…. 😉

  23. Louise @ WeeWifie's World March 18, 2010 at 5:53 am #

    I’ve always wanted red shoes/boots been too scared to be so daring!

    This photograph has re-ignited this desire I’ve been managing to hide from…

    I NEED red shoes or boots… it’s no longer a want. It’s a need, a necessity!

    That’s what a powerful photograph will do to a woman!

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:42 pm #

      £10 out of Internacional – get in there!

  24. Adrenalynn March 18, 2010 at 12:34 pm #

    WOW! Stunning girl, stunning boots, stunning photo! I love it, love it, love it! And suddenly I’m really upset there is still snow on the ground so I can’t wear my red killer heels…

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:46 pm #

      Thanks – I don’t think I’ve had red killer heels myself since I was 18. I must try something non-black sometime 🙂

  25. Jo Beaufoix March 18, 2010 at 12:39 pm #

    Wow that is very cool. Your daughter is tres funky. I love the stark contrasts and the brightness of those fab boots. Brilliant capture.

    • mrsw March 18, 2010 at 12:48 pm #

      Aw thanks – hopefully there will be some photo prompts coming up where I can share her face too 🙂
      I wonder if “moody mare”, “stinking attitude” and “whatever!” are on the cards?
