I am not a photographer. Far from it.
But I do enjoy taking photos.
More than actually taking the photos,
I love to alter them in the photo edit.
I love to crop the photo into more interesting compositions.
I love to play with color.
I guess I enjoy photography when I treat it more like painting.
So this got me thinking…about creativity, inspiration, and most especially: color.
Choose a color–any color, one that best represents you, or your mood.
Choose a group of digital photos that work good together, maybe they even hint at a story.
Now start to play in the photo edit–don’t be afraid to get plastic or acidic with your colors.
Burst them with color, or fade them to a whisper.
Saturate and soak them in your heart’s favorite hue!
Turn them to black and white and get moody with the contrast.
It’s all good!
Peace & Love.
