2012 Color Challenge: Week 33 - Tyrian Purple

Turning Into the Light

Tyrian Purple is an amazing color. I had actually photographed this color before - though not under the name - but I'm so thrilled there's a name for this over-saturated, overwhelming color. I decided to go with a completely blown-out color scheme with this one, making my skin incredibly pale and exaggerating the dark of the hair and dress even more. I started with a white hair, but I think the black works better as a frame for my skin, filling in some of the gaps. I really ended up liking the combination of over and under-saturated, the vivid solidity of my clothing and hair against the fragility and impermanence of the flowers in the mist. They have a cartoonish feel, even at full color, especially with the bright, primary colors of the flowers with their shiny green stems. I feel kind of shiny, too - awesome shiny outfit from Sn@tch, awesome shiny boots from KS Creations. I also feel like I'm hiding, because I am - secure behind an avatar in a way I am unable to be secure out in the big, bad, scary world.
