So far I have made fairly detailed blog entries around 5 themes:
My first choice will be which to reject, all have required many hours of preparation, activity, and processing; however, these were not the only ideas I had, in this blog entry I want to briefly document some of the other ideas. I did not develop any of these as far, however, when first approaching them they were as much a candidate as the other 5 .
I have always enjoyed still life photography and much of my house is decorated with photographs of roses and tulips from earlier attempts at still life. I went to a local florist and purchased 20 euros of cut flowers in all the primary and secondary colours I could find. The quartet below is a sample of images that met the 4 criteria.
Although Munich's church's do not have much stained glass, some exists and I thought this would provide a very colorful and intriguing study. In the end I did not pursue this one as I had already developed the Church images quite a log way and planned to use a single piece of stained glass. In any case here is a quartet from some medieval glass preserved in the Bavarian State Museum
The contrasts were also a bit of a stretch in this sequence
In assignment 1 I used some colorful graffiti as a subject and had an idea to revisit it in this assignment, ultimately I ran out of time to develop this too far - one challenge of this assignment is that it is effectively without end, newer, better image ideas can always be found. This is a very rough test sheet that I prepared with photos of graffiti a couple of blocks from where I live.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed that many of the trees, now bare of leaves, still had berries and in many different colours. Simply for fun I took a bunch of images using berries to illustrate the contrasts - I never had an intent to proceed with this, but working on the assignment was leading me to look for quartets of colour combinations
