We have a shark enthusiast in our family, so a trip to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey in honor of shark week was a perfect opportunity to shoot a lot of blue (embrace the grain people!). Plus our hometown of New York City surrounded by water helped a little too.
This month I followed the suggestion of my friend, Jill Cassara, and carried my pocket rocket Fuji xe2 around with me as much as I could. Below are a few of the yellow pops of color I found on the streets of New York City.
"Black and white photography can show how something is; color adds how it is, imbued with temperatures and humidities of experience." - Peter Schjeldahl
As photographers we are not only captivated by light but also by color and how it can be used to enhance the emotion of our images. With that in mind, I am embarking on a monthly project called The Color Collaborative, with a group of talented and diverse women photographers. Together we will support each other, allowing for creative risk and interpretation, as we find and capture a new color every month.
Our first month is GREEN and below is my debut series. Even in the harshest of NYC winters, beneath it all was something bright and beautiful.
Please follow along the circle to see the rest of CC's images for this introductory week, starting with the talented Erin Konrath.
