Feeling so peaceful and happy after an impromptu visit  to the NY Aquarium yesterday. There’s something so relaxing about watching all the fish swim around. What’s your favorite sea creature? Mine is sea turtles 🐢🐠🦀🐡🐟

Продолжаем нашу фото рубрику 📸
И не забываем: я в Нью-Йорке и принимаю заказы на съемки! Пишите в директ или на почту 💌
⠀
Сегодня поговорим с вами про цветокоррекцию!
Цветокоррекция — это изменение цветов на фото для получения более гармоничной гаммы. Я делаю ее в программе Lightroom на компьютере. Для этого в голове я всегда держу цветовой круг, состоящий из 12 цветов и их оттенков. 
При обработке фото использую три цветовые схемы:
⠀
1) Монохромная схема (примеры — фото 1, 2 и 8).
При обработке фото по этой схеме в фотографии используются только оттенки одно сектора цветового круга. То есть по сути на всем фото есть только один цвет, но разной яркости и насыщенности.
У меня чаще всего это оранжевый или красно-коричневый, так как именно эти оттенки отвечают за тон кожи.
⠀
2) Аналогичная схема (примеры — фото 3, 4, 5, 6 и 9).
В этой схеме используются ~3 сектора из спектра, которые располагаются по соседству, например, желто-зеленый + желтый + оранжевый.
Так как цвета близки друг к другу, то получаются спокойные сочетания, которые очень подходят для фото в мягком свету.
⠀
3) Дополнительная схема (пример — 7 фото).
В этой схеме используются два цвета, которые находятся на противоположных позициях в цветовом круге: например, синий + оранжевый.
Такая схема подходит для контрастных фото, так как она подчеркивает противоположность цветов и делает фото более «звонким».
Раньше это была моя любимая схема, сейчас же больше перешла на аналогичную.
⠀
Теперь ваша очередь!
Пользуетесь ли вы цветовыми схемами и знали ли вообще про них?
И обязательно напишите в комментариях темы, которые было бы интересно разобрать! Так как пока для будущих постов в этой рубрике идей у меня нет 🙈 (так как для меня все кажется понятным и не нужным к объяснению!)

Oh the winged-eye (aka. cat-eye) and red lip combo! A classic look!! 😽💋⠀
No wonder we learned this on the second day of makeup school! I love how elegant this looks with the matte red lip. Also a special look for me because I wore it for our 1-year wedding anniversary celebrations !💍👫

I got a lot of strange looks while sitting on Bow Bridge getting this shot.
I got a lot of strange looks while sitting on Bow Bridge getting this shot.
Today is my birthday. I am 27 years old. I wanted to take a(nother) social media break before today so I could soak in my last days of 26 without the distractions and comparison that  always seem to creep in. 
I used to post on social media when something big happened or when I was on a cool trip or when I had won an award or this or that. Ya know, the highlights of my life. 
But the real highlights are the things I don’t post. Like having my loved ones over for dinner last night—my heart swelling with gratitude and joy. My closest people in one spot celebrating togetherness. I don’t post about how damn wonderful my boyfriend is all the time—mostly because I know I could get carried away easily and probably dedicate an entire other instagram page to all the ways he makes me feel. Sometimes I wish my feed was filled with pictures of him holding my hand or my dogs licking his face or his way with words or his patience. I haven’t posted much about the steps I’m taking to live the life I’ve always wanted for myself. I hide behind the fear of judgement. I haven’t shown you all the tiniest fraction of the good in my life. Not because I’m trying to hoard it. Or maybe that is exactly the case. I want to lock all these moments of my life away in my heart and mind. The good moments. The moments when I feel wholly loved and supported. Social media doesn’t need my highlight reel. Social media doesn’t care. But my people do. My friends and family do. 
I don’t really know where I’m getting at (I woke up just a few minutes ago), but as I look on this year to come, I am reminded that the beautiful moments of my life don’t always need to be put in front of everyone's face. They are my moments. It is my life. Presence is key to joy. Social media owes me nothing and I owe nothing to social media. I owe my everything to this one life I get to lead, the people who make it good, and the voice in my head that says “take another step, Rachel. And take another. Keep going.”
Our stories are worth more than instagram likes. Our lives are too special to fit into a screen. 
Happy birthday to me, I hope I keep growing.
