Why can't you photograph Purple?



What is it about the colour purple? Why is it soooooo difficult to photograph? It looks blue/not purple when photographed!! OK I'm rubbish with the camera & it's not a top of the range but that is no excuse ............................. But I've tried :-)
2 cards for the purple challenge on Hels blog - they are purple Hels! :-)

Fab cards Rachel, thanks for joining in hun...I agree purple is a bit hard to get right in the pics...but I found an even worse colour!!! Gold....when I take a photo of it it looks green...and I have no excuse cos my camera is a new swizzy one! :O)) LOL Hugs Hels x

Rachel said...

Thanks Hazel :-) The camera hasn't picked up the actual colour very well but I'm glad they do look purple :-)

Rachel - Purple is allegedly a difficult colour to replicate. And a rough quote from 'The Color Purple' "God gets p'd off if you don't smile at the color purple' - well, I am smiling, in abundance, your cards are lovely!
