Colors of 2013

Colors 0f 1013 Turquoise & Gold

I just love this combination of colours, it makes me think of that 
perfect little Tiffany gift box and with the Holidays just around the corner 
what better way to get inspired than by creating all things sparkly.

November will be celebrated with many shades of TURQUOISE and GOLD
Lets get ready to showcase some new work in style.

Thank you so much Mary Caroll from the Mary Caroll Photography  
for hosting October's ORANGE challenge.


Katy Charlton from the Colors of 2013 group shared a link about 
the psychology of color with us today. Here is what they say about 
We definitely share all of these qualities in our group and 
we surely have INFINITE passion to create.

Cannot wait to see this month come to life.

Colors of 2013 - May in Blue

Colors of 2013 - May in BLUE

We are back with May in Blue after a wonderful March in Green and April in White. I wanted to thank Karrie Brewer Drake for helping out during the last two months with the group while my life finds a new normal after losing my mother in law a few weeks ago and becoming caregiver to my father in law all in a heartbeat. I have had so much support both through family and friends and from my online community. Thank you all for being so kind.

Now lets get back to creating beautiful art for the soul and best of all create new work our portfolios and shops.

Blues have always been a soothing color to me, from oceans to clear blue skies. Shades of Turquoise, Baby Blues and Aquamarine. How about my favorite Tiffany Blue. You can enhance your color using Photoshop if you want to unify all your blues to create a gorgeous serie. The possibilities are endless even with one simple word "BLUE"

Beautiful inspiration from the members of COLORS OF 2013 Group

Have you seen the January in RED collection over at COLORS OF 2013 Flickr group. 
I'm so thrilled to share this new group with such talented ladies (men are welcome at any time ;)

Not only are their photographs beautiful and creative but so are they.

Here are some random selections of the JANUARY RED color theme that the group members had to follow. Red is not always an easy color to shoot but as you can tell there is a lot of talent here.

Please forgive me if I did not list all of the members images here as there are just too many beautiful ones. I promise to give everyone a chance to be posted on my blog in the future months.


If you are a photographer and wish to join and share, we have a Facebook Group. It is by invite ONLY, so request to join and I will contact you within 48 hrs. HERE

Bottom right: Janice Darby

I had fun with these also and came up with a few images for Valentine note cards

Did you ever want to group 3 or 4 photographs on your wall or better yet showcase in your shop but find it hard to find images that look good grouped together.
Well, why not work on creating collections in 2013.

Each month will have it's own color. The style, theme and subject will be all up to you. Weather you are a portrait photographer or a fine art photographer like myself this project is sure to add some fun to your portfolio. The creativity is endless and best of all you could customize your photos to suit your own style.

So here we go!
JANUARY will be RED... as we get ready for next month's Valentines.

Portrait photography by Anam Cara Photography
So lets start creating... if you are a portraits photographer, than dress up your client in red or do a close up of red lips, maybe make a little girl hold a red apple just for the fun of it.
If you are a fine art photographer, there are endless fruits that are red, or flowers (my favorite) or even a red door or a red book. Maybe it's that special romantic sunset ;)

You get the idea. CREATE in COLOR

How to participate:

1- Add your color theme images to this Flickr group. You should aim to post one image per week. Post as many as you wish but be sure to choose your top 4 amazing shots. This will allow you to select a quality portfolio. Remember quality over quantity.

2- Join the Facebook Group where I will be posting the color theme at the beginning of every month.
Since Flickr is not very easy to communicate in groups as they do not have notifications, this private closed FB group will allow us to share ideas and get news on the project and maybe make some new connections.
Also if you do not have a Flickr account please use the group to showcase your weekly post.

3- Once a month I will showcase 4 to 8 pieces from the previous month on my blog. Be sure to sign up to my newsletter.

Lets start the fun and remember no stress, no obligations. We all know life can get busy so don't worry if you cannot post once a week, just keep the creative flow throughout the year.
