Project Spectrum 3.0

Project Spectrum

A few months ago, I learned about Project Spectrum from Kathy. It’s a no- pressure, creative outlet, celebration of color. I was especially intrigued by a comment to incorporate the element into the work beyond the color, e.g. the fire of a kiln to produce ceramics. After following the Flickr group for a week or so, I took a deep breath and decided to dive in. The first two months (Frebruary and March) were “Fire” – red, yellow, and pink. As it turns out, I don’t do much with these colors in general. However, I was taking a ceramics class, and even though the red glazes in the studio don’t appeal to me much I could get to “fire” that way. I did manage to contribute a few items, including some “ice into fire” photos accomplished through color manipulation. (My full set on Flickr is here – currently my 5 “fire” items, but I’ll be adding to it over the year).

Next up: earth – greens, browns, metallics. I’m much more of a green person, and clay naturally fits into an earth theme, so I’m likely to be much more productive for this segment!

    Very cool. I really liked the ice-to-fire convesions.

    Looking forward to the next set!

    Oh, I like the boots!

    This is really neat – looking forward to seeing the next ones you do.

    Beautiful photos! I especially love the fire/ice ones and the birch trees.

    Thanks, everyone. I had to restrain myself from doing the color conversions on all the window frost photos I had :^) Ruth, it was funny how the boots photo came about. Z’s teacher asked people to send extra boots for a field trip they were going on, and I commented to a mom that we had probably a dozen pair of boots. So then once I got them out, I had to document it! And only the smallest pair of rain boots is black, the rest are red or yellow. We have much more color variation in our snow boots!
