The Color Wheel

February 19, 2019  •  3 Comments

It's cold here in San Diego. 

Okay, let's take a moment for you to roll your eyes, snicker a bit, and tell your screen that I wouldn't know cold if it bit me in the arse, because YOU know cold and San Diego ain't it.  

But it is cold and I spent some time indoors playing in the color wheel and built this little slideshow to amuse myself while out of the frigid, bone-chilling, three-dog-night temps we have going <insert laugh track>. 

I like color but I never feel I do it well.  It feels like a new pair of slacks that looked great on the mannequin but are a centimeter too short in the leg and rise above my shoe tops. Nothing I do gets them to fit right.  So, I break out the SilverEFX and jettison the RGBs into pixel wasteland.  

The slideshow has music by Miles Davis so if you prefer you can close your eyes for five minutes and listen to some of the finest music we humans have ever created.  Regardless, it's my gift to you, Miles included. 


Stay Warm.

"I like color but I never feel I do it well". Oh my, well, okay, I'll take your word for it. So, who's work have I just spent time looking at? I mean, it can't be you because you said you don't do colour well, and coming from your next post, I know you wouldn't want me to find a truth to be a lie, and these photos are all wonderful, and in no small part, because of the colour element within them. In fact, with some of the images, it is precisely the colour that makes those shots. I mean, just look at that opening shot, that is pure cinematic colour grading right there. That's complementary colours at their absolute best for sure. Anyway, pass on my compliments to whoever created this visual feast of images. I thoroughly enjoyed it :)

That's a great selection of photos, and they do work well in color. I do have to admit that I for quite some of them, I saw how they would also work in black and white, and the way you work them into black & whites. And I think you do work with colors all the times in your black & white conversions - they provide you with the tonal separation when light & shadow alone are not enough, no? ;-)

For someone who feels they never do color well you've managed to put together a really nice collection of color images. And you always do a great job with these slideshows, giving us a pleasant break from whatever worries we had for the day. Thanks for sharing.
