Day 1's Assignment: "Ivory"

Day 1's Assignment:  "Ivory"
I thought about what the word "ivory" means to me.  As a redhead, I right away thought about my skin tone.  I know that sounds silly, but my friend Steph and I were talking about redhead's "ivory" skin tone and how beautiful it is (as long as you protect it from the sun).  So it made sense to me to use a picture of my good friend Steph's daughter for my photo today.

This was a beautiful photo straight out of the camera, but to highlight her beautiful "ivory" skin, so I ran a PSE action called "whipped cream" and it really gave the photo a creamy color.

I'm really happy about how my first assignment turned out.  How do you not just LOVE a sweet little redheaded girl?  (I'm a bit partial though...)

If you are a part of the creativity boot camp and are visiting my blog, please feel free to comment.  As we all should, please keep comments respectful and positive.  Negativity is not ok!!

Happy viewing!

Oh my goodness, Stephanie! I adore that picture! The perspective is amazing and the tones are perfect! I almost photographed my baby's skin for ivory, too...but I ended up doing something different.

Thanks for participating! xo

Oh, btw...where is the whipped cream action from?

Beautiful photo and child. My granddaughter (3 months) is a redhead with Ivory skin also. I love redheads coloring.

Maegan: Whipped Cream is an action form program called Photoshop Elements. I've not tried it but this is inspiring to do so.

As a fellow porcelain skinned, (enhanced) redhead, I immediately thought of skin tone, too. A beautiful capture of a beautiful girl.

I love your interpretation. I also thought of skin tones, but I have olive skin and my kids are darker yet. I just didn't know anyone with ivory skin. Great pictures.


So sweet! My niece has red hair (she's seven) - she likes to say it's strawberry blond -- little does she know how lucky she is. This reminded me of her - thank you!


Awwwww! She's so cute!!!
Perfect start to boot camp :)
