A Pop of Color
As my WordPress Photography 101 course continues, we move from light and perspective to color! I’ve always loved colors since I was a kid. My favorite color has changed over the years from blue, to purple to green with a little pink and yellow thrown in. I am drawn to colors in nature and in my own home and life, as color adds a richness that I am happy to embrace.
Here’s how color showed up in a photo shoot I did yesterday for the Ultimate Vegan Mac and Cheese Showcase that took place in Portland, Oregon. It was hosted by Vegan Iron Chef and it really blew the socks off of anyone who might be tempted to say “oh, I could never be vegan, I can’t give up cheese.” Check out the fun we had!

Near 200 attended this fun event, including volunteers who worked really hard.
These two gals brought their own stainless steel containers, a sign we are definitely in Portland. Very cool!
