This assignment requires us, the students, to find the colour red (or stage its appearance) and capture the image. Reflecting on the various scenes I could stage, I went through pictures I have taken over the last six years.
These are certainly not the best pictures I can take, except the sunset picture. Apologies, but I really believe I took a good shot of that. The collection of pictures below is the mental slideshow I played in my head to get ideas for the current assignment.
None of these pictures have been edited in any manner.
I like this picture because of the (almost) elliptical position of the colour. Yes, it is very out of focus but at this point I did not know about shutter speed and had a very limited understanding of depth of field.
This is an experiment with the macro settings of a Fujifilm FinePix Z70. This is when I also should have taught myself ISO speed. However, I do like the dark tone of the picture. To me, it gives an air of darkness and imperfection – highlighted by the blackened edges of the rose petals and the cracked iPod screen.
