Books



Yesterday, I went to help a friend come up with some ideas for activities for a Halloween lesson she was planning.  She works in a school library and wanted things to center around that.  While I was there, I wanted to try some shots of books on the shelves.  Here is one of them.  The photo was auto adjusted for colour and contrast.



This is the same shot as above, only this time I chose the "colour in the center" application on Photoshop Elements.  I might try to play with the contrast a little more, and maybe see how that looks (especially on the black and white parts of the photo).  I also want to learn to do selective colours as I think that might look pretty cool in a photo like this.

P.S. Yesterday's photo is of some blurred books on this book shelf.

The perspective of the photo gives an illusion of the diminishing size of the books and the depth of field is perfectly displayed with the focus on the few books and rest of it is blurred.... Nicely done. I like both the versions!
