If black is the absence of color, white is the sum of all colors. That was a difficult thing to explain to the girls, right up until I pulled out the prism and showed them the rainbow. Science – it’s fun and pretty.
On top of being a fun scientific fact, white being the sum of all colors makes it an appropriate subject with which to finish up my Colors theme. I’ve had a lot of fun with this theme, but it’s time for a change. And that’s not just because I’m out of different color backgrounds either!
Today’s image – like yesterday’s Oreos – needs no explanation for those of us with a sweet tooth. It’s particularly appropriate as we are in the midst of getting hit with another snow storm.
This shot was a fun one to light. I tried something completely different, and rather than using multiple shop lights I used a single flash. I fired it through a diffuser and bounced it off of first one, then a second, then a third foam board. I like the effect, eliminating any harsh shadows from the mug and marshmallow bag, while leaving nice soft multi-directional shadows to define the marshmallows.
