Tuesday Photo Challenge – RGB

The good primaries!

Welcome to Week 54 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  As we’re into the second year of the Tuesday Photo Challenge, the pressure is on to keep raising the game, both mine and, by challenging each of you, yours!

So, you’re probably looked at the title of this post and wondered where I’m going with this week’s challenge…  If you guessed it, your mind is as full of twisty passages as mine!  My challenge to you this week is to use RGB: Red, Green and Blue.  In your photo have each of the colors red, green and blue be represented.  This may seem a bit tricky, but I think that by looking around, you’ll quickly see how often these colors occur in the world around you.

What will be interesting to me, is how you will use these colors in your photography to express their primal existence within our world.  I’m very much looking forward to your entries!  As always, you have free rein with your interpretation and direction of creative outlet, so color your world with fun imagination!

Even though, I had a very specific image of mine in mind, when I thought of this challenge, I’m leading off with another image…

Paperclips_MG_5025
Just Paperclips…

These paperclips came from an experiment I performed during a product photography course, when I wanted to show the humble paperclip in a different light.  Using light and arrangement to add a bit of pop and drama, and a macro lens to get extreme size, I created this image just over 3 years ago.

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Very much looking forward to all of your great images!  Should be a fun week!

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!
