For my color imaging class we’re required to do a “color match” project. The point of the project is to photograph a subject that you’ve been dealing with for your portfolio and include something red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow. The next time you go shopping, see how many items you can find with ALL of those colors (just a head’s up, it’s next to impossible!!) Once you do the shooting, then you head to the lab and make 40 trees’ worth of prints trying to get the print to match the color of the objects EXACTLY. It sounds easy, but its incredibly time consuming. Previously we had to photograph a card with 25 different colors on it and try to match the colors. After 8 hours solid of printing and adjusting, i was still only able to match 12 out of the 25.
Anyway, for this shoot I found a party hat at Hobby Lobby and decided that Stoli would be my subject. I haven’t photographed him since January, and after shooting a ton of rowdy dogs in the studio, I thought it would be nice to get back to my roots. Stoli was SO good by comparison. It’s a lot easier to photograph a dog when it knows its basic commands like: sit, stay, down.
These photos are more fun than a serious body of work. I am extremely stressed (to put it lightly) right now over mid-program assessment next week, so I wanted to get something fun without getting a raging ulcer in the process.
Stoli is turning one on May 31st, so I suppose this is his early birthday!
