Stilleben in rosÃ©
still life in pink
No it was not a plastic tulip, and no, it’s not post-processed in any way
The trick was to get the white balance right and to slightly defocus. Since I had a manual white balance on camera, the photo looked quite different to me while shooting. When I set the white balance in the development afterwars, this was what popped out of it. Not that bad.
The second truth is, that this photo reminds me of a friend of mine that died last year. She once took a photo of her lips and photoshopped it to be glossy candy-like plastic. I loved it and so it was quite a coincidence to me that I produced the same effect just by using the eyedropper.
