Chasing Colour

Strong graphic qualities. Shape. Colour. Harmony. I shot all of these a couple years ago in Italy while I was feeling uninspired and not making my “real photographs.” Funny what sometimes happens when you stop trying so damn hard.

The beautiful thing is you can photograph colour anywhere.

Got a macro lens? Get outside and look for colour in the smallest flowering plants. Stuck in the house? Do the same with whatever you’ve got but defocus the lens and shoot so nothing is recognizable. You can use multiple exposures, you can use motion blur, or keep it more literal, but just shoot colour. Look for different combinations and don’t worry about what the thing you’re photographing is.
