What’s Color Got To Do With It?

Color is a big component of setting the mood of a room, no doubt. A cool color such as a pale grey gives the sense of calm and a bright red gives the sense of high energy. Same goes for the color of art work.

I work in photography and have the capability to change the color of my images to create complete different looks. Take for example the below sailboat image:

1763_Yellow Sailboat-Summer Breeze-3853-3858

The look is cool. I call this one “Spring Breeze” because I can sense a bit of a crispness to the air. This is the untouched image, direct from my camera. I then wanted to transform this image to something unique and different. Here is the result.

1763_Blue Sailboats

This is what I call “Summer Breeze”. It is the same file as the one above but here I have changed the colors creating an image that may not be realistic, which is ok, but it also changes the mood of the photo.

The Shell Game

Last summer I went to West Hampton Beach to visit my friend Nancy to take her portrait for her social media and marking materials. We had a lovely day driving around to a few fun location to take her photos. Then back to her place, she showed me her shell collection. Nancy loves to collect shells and I took lots of photos. I narrowed down the selection to these image which Nancy now has hanging in her home. These have become so special to her because not only does she love the images, they are part of personal shell collection.

Signing Off

Redwoods

Getting ready for my art show on March 2nd at Bene Rialto. The reception is open to the public and runs from 6pm-8pm. This is a photograph that I took while visiting Muir Woods National Monument outside of San Francisco, Ca.

“Light Leaks” is my take on my visit to the park, the beautiful trees.. the greens and browns..I reimagined to concentration on the warmth of the sun and adding a pink tonality and highlighted the blown out sun. In the photograph, you feel the sun’s warmth reaching out to you.
