I love the color accent setting on my camera. My daughter’s ballet tutu was in teal, so teal got the accent for these photos. In Photoshop, I just adjusted the magenta and yellow settings a bit to add some sepia.
This photo has sentimental value, as the paintings that are highlighted because of the teal setting are my mother’s landscapes.

Two lovely shots. The first one is really beautiful. I like your room too; is this the lounge? We have wooden floor too.
Lounge? This is our all purpose front living room. My husband wishes we had a den. One side (not shown) has 2 couches and comfy chair and tables littered with books. The other side is often the stage for my daughter’s shows.
Lounge must be British English, but yes it means linving-room. 🙂
Two very lovely photos. You did the color accenting right in the camera? I’m impressed, I never even think to mess around with a shot until it’s already up on my computer screen.
I really love these…love those touches of color.
A delicate ballerina in turquoise pastel.
The landscape pictures are special.
Good that you did not sepia them.
Good and soo clever.
That is so pretty Leora!!!
wonderful, emotive little miss!
The teal is accented even more with the surrounding sepia that softens the view for the vibrant colors of the dress. Our daughter wore teal for her recital dress when she was in second grade. I never tired of her recitals!
Quite the form in that first image!
The second seems to have a teal glow behind your daughter.
I’m off to check out my camera book and see what it says about settings – hmmmm….I never knew.
Very moving post and the photos are sensational & your mother’s too – what I can see of them! I really like the sepia shading – not too much, just enough!!!
I really like these in sepia. The teal looks wonderful with the browns. The total effect works for me!
I think I learned something here. Your daughter is beautiful, you’ll treasure these photos.
Neat feature, this color accent you speak of. And well used in this pair of shots, too!
Lovely work in Photoshop and I like the teal too.
what amazing shots! Enjoyed my time here today!
What lovely photos! I like the teal accent, and how it contrasts the sepia tone.
both shots are like professional portraits! actually better since they have such feeling to them
beautiful ballet dancer 🙂
Dianne, so nice of you to use the word “professional”! I like the portraits I do of my kids much better than the “professional” ones we pay for at school. My son actually lost the last set of pics they took of him; he left them in a desk. I cared more that I wasted $30 than I didn’t get the pics.
She is so like a professional ballet dancer, Leora! You mother’s landscapes are lovely! Good job at half sepia! 🙂
How do you do that..I love it…
What sweet photos of your little ballet dancer. The teal looks pretty against the sepia tones.
As Ralph said, our daughter wore teal one June for a recital, then wore the costume for Halloween ~ that way we got a little bit more use out of it!
Enjoy these days, Leora. I really miss our daughter when she is away at college.
Beautiful photos. The first one might be a good one to bring to her next art class. We were talking about Edgar Degas this week. That teal skirt is totally Degas! See link:
She is lovely and the color alteration makes the photo nice.
Thanks for thevisit.
Just so lovely. Your daughter will treasure these when she is all grown up.
Does anybody know which camera to use, or how in general to create these types of images?
lomantos, you can do the images one of two ways. Either convert it after you have the picture, which is the way most people do the shot. Or you can use the camera setting.
If you visit Sepia Scenes, you’ll find out more. See:
Jill, now I know why I had to fish your comment out of spam…probably it didn’t like a link showing up!
I’ll try to show the girl some Degas before Tuesday. I’ve got plenty of Degas in books here.
