WIRR 2017, May Week 2

Several years ago I took a workshop on developing a photographic vision with local photographer Cole Thompson.  One of the exercises during the class was to pull out a collection of your favorite images and see what was common about them.  I found a high percentage of my photographs had dominant blues and yellows.  I realized later that this preference extended to paintings as well.  There’s a great mural in a side alley off of Old Town Square that I took a picture of this week.  Rather than shoot the whole mural, I focused in on a tiny part, and then made the blues and yellows sing.  This became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom.  I made lots of small changes to this one- exposure, contrast, clarity, and vibrance.  I then really blasted the colors.

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh.  This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
