February’s personal project: Colors

Ever since Spencer Lum’s workshop back in July of last year, I’ve been thinking about my palette. Palette, in photography, refers to the colors that you use. In any given scene, a photographer chooses to include or exclude based on artistic choice. And a photographer chooses which scenes to photograph, obviously. My palette tends to pops of color, but I sometimes find myself avoiding color or working against it. So in February I made a conscious effort to seek out colors and work with them in their vibrancy. Here are some images from my experiments.

This is probably my favorite from the set. I’ve always been fascinated by geometry and shadows. When working with just color forms, balance becomes the key player.

I wasn’t purposely trying to be abstract, but that’s how my initial wanderings turned out. Later on I took some photos with George while we were “ingressing” (don’t ask).

Any thoughts? I’d love to hear what you have to say.

If we give the images numbers. I love 7, 8 and 9 as a triptych!

Excellent; thank you for sharing. Reminds me of Josef Albers.
