Temptation of Colors in Photography
Though I love colors – hot colors – it has always been a challenge to capture them, fun but tough challange.
Though I belive black & white is one of the hardest branches in photography, many people uses color-dead photos to cover their art’s imperfections. To me art is only perfect with all the intentional mistakes; and art is art ony with its colors whether they are black and white.
Capturing light, focusing on objects, creating a compositon out of no where, capturing the moment as you see… Nothing else but this is art.
Even a black & white photo is only good if it can make you imagine the frame in color. You may not not see the color but you have to sense it. This is why, it is hard to take black and white photos.
Why I don’t take black & white photos; simple… First of all I do not have that much of imagination and I respect the photographers who respect their art in black and white; second of all there are so many people out there who think that they can become artists shooting inacceptable photos covering their unintentional mistakes by switching their camera’s black & white shooting mode on.
