Darkroom Gallery Contest “Chroma”
Color photography: the power of a palette reveals the true nature of an image.
It is easy to take color for granted; after all, it is how we see the world every day. But color plays such an integral part in our emotions and in our perception of a scene. Knowledge of the nature of color and how to capture it gives paramount impact and expression to photography. As long ago as the 6th-century in China, people have tried to understand how and why we react to different colors and how the various colors work together. More than the combination of red, blue and yellow, color is a visual tool for non-verbal communication. Darkroom Gallery is calling for works that exemplify the vast aptitudes of color. Photography that compels, through it’s very saturation, an emotive response.
