I am a sucker for bold colours and beautiful pattern. Colours and interesting pattern can be composed on its own even without the presence of a specific subject. And digital photography opens up a new spectrum of styles and methods in producing colour photographs without being bound to specific colour gamut of a specific film of yesteryears. However photography as usual is very much dependant on the person who captures the image no matter how sophisticated the camera is or rather how sophisticated the camera sensor is. When talking about colour photography, inevitably the photographer who always comes to mind is certainly Pete Turner who is considered the grand master in producing bold colour photography with abstract images. Eric Meola is also another sifu in producing vibrant abstract colour photographs. Unsurprisingly Eric Meola is a protege of Pete Turner. Ernst Haas is another master in colour photography. While at home we have Arthur Teng and Pang Piow Kan whose photos are very strong in graphics and colours just to name a few.
I was inspired by them in producing photographs with vibrant colours and interesting pattern. We just need to look closer and more often than not pictures can be produced out of very ordinary things around us. As they said practice makes perfect.
Allow me to share some of my favourite photos produced with bold colours and/or interesting pattern in mind. As I said colours and pattern can consitute interesting composition without involving any particular subject.
