RELATI0NSHIP TESTER - WHAT COLOUR DO YOU SEE?

Theres nothing better than a good debate to test the strength of ones relationship😜 

When nick showed me that shoe I was convinced it was pink and white, and he was convinced it was grey and teal. It didn’t matter how much I twisted my phone, or how much I squinted my eyes I could only see my first colours.

So we put The shoe to our fb tribe, because it looked different to whom ever looked at it. It was pink and grey to some, and it was grey and teal to others. It even changed colour for some on their second look What colour do you see! After 60 comments, and it’s still going! So here’s the picture or shoe in question....

Why do we see different colours?? So I've been doing some research, because my inner nerd needs an answer. One of the reasons can be eye colour? I know fascinating RIGHT! For my brain to heal I had to do some geeking out.. here’swhat I found out😎

FACT NUMBER 1  :- so being  photographer we work with colour all the time, whether it’s through colour temperture, filters for the camera or in editing. Filters on the lens can nueturalise the wave lengths of colour. Because this is how we see and perceive colours, through their reflected wave lengths which them hit the cones of our retina and tell our brain the colour we’ve learnt it to be.  

The cones in our retina determine what we see.

 FACT NUMBER 2 :- It’s also possible that our mood also effects the way on which we see colours. How crazy is that?

FACT NUMBER 3:- colour constancy, is also your brain making assumptions as to how the shoe/dress is lit in the photo. Your brain makes a instinctive choice which then determines how you see the colours in your mind. 

I wonder if this happens if you see the object in life, or is more of  phenomenon of digital photography!! Crikey😜😜 I better not order those curtains from amazon!

There you go folks😌😌 lets hope we settled that😜😜

Till next time

Chell & Nick

SHOES!! And some more shoes! One of my favourite details from your wedding day, have to be the shoes of both, bride and groom. I've seen so many different varieties, from heels, pumps, flip flops.... So many trends! Even the bespoke shoe, which was bling’d up from a old faithful to a beautiful up-sparkled themed heel, reminiscent of irregular choice styling.  Sorry gentlemen, the ladies really do go to town on this one, a lot more than men. So, if any grooms want to surprise us, then please do! We welcome quirky and funny details.

WEDDING BLOG IT TO ME! - THE SECRET BRIDESMAID REVEAL

WEDDING BLOG IT TO ME! -  THE SECRET BRIDESMAID REVEAL

What to expect from our blog.. here’s a heads up from me, Michelle.

Being inspired to write a blog can be a task in itself, what to talk about and all that Jazz. But I personally love the idea of blogging, despite my fear and insecurities.  Many of our couples have come to their pre-wedding consultations full of inspiration, about how they can have this and that… all of which I gained when working at a wedding magazine, as a wedding photographer and not to forget my own research. For me it seemed a shame, that I didn’t offer you, the reader the same level of excitement and inspiration.

WHICH FILM DIRECTOR, WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO CAPTURE YOUR WEDDING STORY?

WHICH FILM DIRECTOR, WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO CAPTURE YOUR WEDDING STORY?

Who would you choose to direct your wedding story? I think I would want Nicolas Sparks to bring my words to life, with some Chris Nolan directing! I reckon that would make a epic wedding film. If you could choose anyone who would you create to be your dream team for you wedding day?
