No! I’m not starting to do color for myself. I am in the process of making Color Presets that make an image feel the way I want it to make me feel. That’s not an easy task because I’m really not a color shooter.
The content and intent must be supportive to color and visa verse. So I just shoot what I always shoot and let the color pixels fall where they may. I don’t think I’d want to be a generic anything at anytime. So I make things the way I live them.
Take the photo right above…..yeah, that one. See, I was just doing my thing looking for whatever I look for. Then without thinking too much, I raise the camera and breathe and then Click! I was thinking that I liked what was going on. The girl seemed so caught up in her femininity and that of the heads. I didn’t think about color or black & white until I got the images into Light Room.
Then of course I realized that I am in the process of designing color presets. So, heck….let’s try it. By Jove, I think he’s got it!
It should be noted that the camera in my hand was the Fuji X20. At no time did it speak to me or cause any intrusion. I don’t treat my camera as a tool. I treat is as my companion on my photographic journey.
More tomorrow…..Good Nite Wouter…..Good Nite Jorge……….
