Hey there, again.
I'm wondering who influence you and your interest in color/colour?
Me. I was somewhat interested when i photographed swirling water. Then later it was artist from the impressionist era. Monet, Manet, Sargent, Casset, The list goes on and includes Georgia O'keefe. Then, I found work by Eliot Porter and then knew I had a shot of experimenting with my camera and color photography.
So what about you?
Early colour inspires me most
And Sergey Prokudin-Gorskii
Like you quite a bit of my colour interest is from art I have already mentioned Josef Albers:
Nice color work, Mark. Your flower image is very brilliant. I like the Sergey Prokudin-Gorskii article was interesting as well. I really like the Autochrome image of Tolstoy. Love the color and clarity.
More and more, I am finding that music relates best to my (more abstract) colour photography. I wrote a bit about that in a recent blog. Here is a youtube clip that says a lot of what I think about the relationship between colour and sound:
I look to influences like this to nudge my thinking about more abstract colour.
That's interesting. Bruce Barnbaum, who is a B&W photographer also says that music influences his work. That is why he has two books that have a music cd attached to them.
I would say that music has a pull on me but not as color. More about doing photography. I happen to like Aaron Copeland's music or other American composers.
Like the You tube link.
