Blue skies

I signed up for the Monday Blues group on flickr as a way to get myself to learn how to take blue skies. In most of my photos, the sky is washed out and white.

This technique for getting blue sky is to shoot away from the sun and to make use of the exposure compensation dial. White sky is overexposed, so set the dial to underexpose. It worked!

That's Missouri soap, a Lavendar-Rosemary Zum Bar. I can get it at Whole Foods, but I don't know if it's a nationwide product for them or a regional one. Blue soap is fun, but it's soap scum is dark gray so the sink looks dirty all the time. I think I'll try a lighter color next time.
