This isn’t an official image post. Rather an announcement of the start of a personal photography project.
The idea came to me after posting this image. I realised that the primary colour is one of the 7 colours of a rainbow – Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red. So I began thinking of the possibility of following this post up with six more, each featuring people dressed up in each of the remaining rainbow colours.
The concept is simple, well relatively. The images would be of people dressed up prominently in each of the seven colours of the rainbow. To accentuate these wonderful subjects I’d render the remaining background in monochrome. And most important of all is the fact these images would need to be candid street shots.
Hopefully this pet project of mine will also help me improve my skills as a street photographer.
So here’s hoping to working on this personal project this year and completing the RainBow series and also becoming a better photographer.
The Posts: Yellow | Blue | Red | Orange
P.S. Oh and the mini cupcakes in the post are my way of saying thanks for sticking around. 🙂
Alright, so this week’s entry is a cheat, so to speak. I already had an image I had clicked that fit the theme almost too perfectly. This image wasn’t even taken this year though. In fact this particular shot was taken 5 years ago! But allow me to explain why I’m using this image for the challenge. This was the very first click from my very first DSLR camera. This was taken after a brief spell of rain in the park near my apartment. The dew on the leaf was absolutely picturesque and I was naturally drawn to the lovely texture of the leaf. As an enthusiast starting out with brand new equipment, this was an absolutely stellar thing to happen. And it kept me motivated to continue clicking and improve my skill. Continue reading
Last weekend (April 18, 2015) I set out on a mission, candid street images. I headed to Orchard Road, the retail mecca within the bustling metropolis of Singapore. The photo walk yielded some really great images, one of which even made its way to my weekly photography challenge post.
