Thinking inside the box is good but sometimes thinking out of the box is more eye-catching and appealing to an audience because it is different and unique, I have messed around with the colours and the effects on photo’s that I have previously taken in Photoshop but this article on “The Daily Mail” really got me thinking on the colours and the angles that I can take my own photo’s this time around.
I have decided to just copy and paste the information off of “The Daily Mail” simply because there was no point in me rewriting the text on there because it is perfect the way it is, this could also help me in writing my own text for my 4 page spread.
Sometimes a good camera coupled with artistic flair is enough to turn an ordinary landscape into a magnificent candy-colored wonderland.
French photographer David Keochkerian has been working in the medium of infrared photography, creating eye-popping vistas of super-saturated colors reminiscent of some of the finest Van Gogh paintings. A series of pictures shot with a Nikon D700 camera capturing scenic areas around Keochkerian’s hometown of Amiens, Belle ile en Mer, Corbie and Camon overwhelm the sight of the viewers with surreal hues straight out of Dr. Seuss books.
According to experts, in order to create the vision-warping saturated effects in his pictures, the 35-year-old French artist relies on a variety of techniques like long exposure, manual blending and infrared photography, to magnificent ends.
In infrared photography, a filter is used on the camera to block all light except infrared waves, giving the image a wonderland quality, not unlike the vision of Oz in the beloved Hollywood classic, according to the site SHFT. In Keochkerian’s images depicting rivers, woods and picturesque spots in the French countryside, the natural greens are automatically transformed into bizarre-looking canary yellows and golds, electric blues, bubblegum pinks and ghostly whites.
The breathtaking images of nature seemingly inspired by the great 19th century French expressionists sweep aside traditional notions of what a landscape should look like in an explosion of psychedelic colors.
