    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of August, 2007

    Advertising screams, ‘We want color photos!’ and galleries yell back, ‘Only black & white matters.’ That was the past. Yes, it’s certain that color images dominate in print and web advertising and that classic photography found in galleries is more closely associated... More
  • Drabble: Colour Me Beautiful

    by Secretnarrative | 15th of January, 2014

    The vibrant silk kimono clashes with my Chanel red lips and nails, but I decide it doesn’t matter; certain shades of orange, like terracotta, are tonal, subtler than red. Sienna, baked clay, emits earthy, soothing warmth, and I consider trying a different lipstick. Orange,... More
  • The Magic of Monotone Photos

    by Eric1513 | 14th of March, 2011

    Monotone photos are powerfully simple and convey emotion like few types of photos can. With all extraneous color eliminated, we are left only with light and shape. Add to that a single color and the image is more powerful than its individual parts. In previous posts... More

    by Sepavo | 16th of June, 2010

  • Black and White?

    by Cleaper | 15th of September, 2008
