Color Study

Aqua, Tiffany blue,  turquoise, teal, and robin-egg blue are all from blue/green combinations that make up my favorite color.

My camera was set to the aperture priority setting for each of these. 1 and 3 have shallow depth of field, while 2 and 4 have deep depth of field. Minor edits were added such as slight cropping and color intensity. In the last photo I felt like the blue of the sky clashed with the teal-ish colors on the train cars, so I adjusted the sky in Photoshop to take on the blue characteristics of the spray paint. I also recolored the pipes which were originally a bright sky blue.

  1. Wow, you are a talented friend! Your shots are so unique and intriguing. I love the pipe one – the repeating pattern creates an awesome shot. I love the train one too – the way it fades out of your shot is sweet. I am really excited to see your work this semester and learn from your approach.

  2. That photo of the old truck is awesome! I think you did a really good job of capturing the color of it but I also love the contrast in comparison to the rust on it. The angle makes it very interesting to look at as well.

  3. I really love the mixture of colors that you got in your photos. They really speak volumes and make for beautiful pictures. Along with the colors I really appreciate the perspective that each picture was taken at. My favorite one that you took was the one of the truck, I feel that it really brings out the antique feel of the truck and makes it beautiful.
