Bits of Red, Italian Style
22 Jun 2011
On JPG we're offered the opportunities to improve our photography skills through observation, constructive criticism, articles and essays. Sure I love seeing a bunch of glowing comments under my photos and essays, but feedback that spark a positive change/changes to my works or at least a different way of viewing them and posts that inspire me to try new techniques are most beneficial to my artistic growth. For example, Anthony Cronin's ( http://jpgmag.com/people/Simplicius ) thoughtful comment regarding my photo: Little Red Bear, resulted in Little Red Bear, Take Two, a much stronger image by isolating the subjects. "Red in Photography" ( http://jpgmag.com/stories/15606 ) by Litz Go made me aware of how even just a bit of red in a photo can add interest. Thanks to John Linton's photo essay, Selective Color: http://jpgmag.com/stories/17411 I tried selective coloring and had great fun creating these images.
