Dear creative Framers, this week we are focusing on color for our challenge! Black and White photography was a firm base (and probably still is today) in the art of photography. It is, however, essential in any visual art to play with and understand the importance of color.Colors have a VERY strong influence on our feelings. Just think of how calming the sight of the blue ocean is, or how spooky an underground parking lot devoid of color can be. For our challenge, we are going to explore the color orange. It is a strong and bold color that demands attention. In Western tradition, orange is usually associated with warmth and enthusiasm but in Buddhism, it is used to signify the quest for knowledge. The fact that orange is so difficult to ignore is also the reason why it is the color of safety wear and prison jumpsuits. It is said that the color orange stimulates creativity, so let’s make an orange album this week that will make Vincent van Gogh smile. He famously said that “there is no blue without yellow and without orange”.
