Why photography? Well, as probably all of us involved in this project experienced, when I was little my parents would only take pictures of “special events”, like birthdays, holidays, and some vacations and nothing else. Thanks to the digital cameras, we can now shoot hundreds of pictures and not worry about how much it will cost to “develop” them. Photography, then, has become in the past few years my major hobby. I shoot not only “special events”, but also all those little moments that make each of our days a special event.
Project 64 Colors has been a fun challenge that has helped me expand my photography abilities. As a watercolor painter myself, the challenge to look for a particular color each week to shoot has helped me to find different subjects, different angles, and different shapes that otherwise I would have not think to capture.
Olive green was not an easy color for me to hunt, so after trying with many different objects, including a pair of shoes, I decided I would use the perfect match: Olives.
I took the shots around 5:00 PM, when the light was perfect outside, and I shot around 30 pictures and played with many different compositions, moving my settings as well.
I really liked the result: clean, vibrant, and creative. For me, capturing food is a big challenge, so this was a fun and challenging session.
