A Colorful New World

A Colorful New World


 

I respect black and white but...

color is my forté

 


Hue Shifting

With the idea that other animals see colors that we simply can't, or that some people cannot see the same colors we can, I thought that would make a pretty profound difference in the way that one views the world. In photography I show this through a technique I call hue-shifting. It works by changing all the colors of the original image in harmony so that they all change equally and the result can be quite astonishing. Can you imagine if you always saw your world this way? 

Color Isolation

This technique grew out of my experimentation with hue shifting. After being featured in a few galleries and festivals, I realized that since everyone has different color preferences, I should create pieces that focus on and emphasize certain colors or color combinations to fit the tastes of anyone I may meet at one of these showings!

May Art Be As Diverse Us

Color is an obsession of mine, and I have always been drawn to bright, bold colors.  This subsection of my photography expresses the endless possibilities of color.  I use hue shifting to challenge viewers to see the world if it were in an entirely different color scheme, to engage people's imaginations of what the world would look like if the hues in the world were shifted.

Color Isolation


This is a technique that became especially popular with the rise of mobile editing. In these pictures, I have isolated color(s)  from their original composition, thus forming a dramatic, yet modern, and minimalistic style. This type of art looks especially good on my Shiny Aluminum product. Make sure to check them out!
