Color Study

During the first half of the fall semester, I had the privilege of taking a color photo class. I had taken color photo classes before, but wanted to take on a new project idea. I decided to start with some research on color theory, and ended up with many photos highlighting different colors from places all over Italy.  

The Color Red

After midterms that semester, I decided to focus on one specific color to study. Red was my favorite color when I was a little girl since it's a vivacious color that represents life, passion, as well as blood and violence. I changed my camera from a digital to a film camera, and got started on my intensive studies on the color red. I was doing this in the fall, which gave me the perfect opportunity to focus on the temporary red in the fall leaves. The following are the end results.
