NOTES FROM THE STUDIO


Good-Bye Color of the Week...

Valori Wells-Kennedy - Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Good- Bye Color of the Week... you have been good to me.

Over the past year I have been pushed at times to find images of a certain color.

Blogtrees

I found out that most of my photographs of blue are of the sky. It was my hardest color to find photos of. Which I find very interesting because my favorite color is turquoise.

Peonywhite

All of the neutrals were the easiest and I loved finding just the right ones.

Suitcases

Sometimes I had to call my husband to ask him what he thought of a color because I had no words.

Yarn

I made a point of posting at least 7 photos of the color. And at times I know I took creative license in picking photos...

Rainycity

I tried to make sure that not all of my photos were of nature. My favorite thing to photograph is the natural world. I wanted to show color in unexpected places.

Cardboard

I loved using my Hipstamatic App on my phone to take photos, sometimes they ended up perfect for colors others not so much. It was unexpected and exciting.

Light

I saw color in more depth than I ever have....

I have been overwhelmed with the response to Your Favorite Color of the Week... thank you so much for all of your kind words. They make my heart so full....I wish I could give some fabric to everyone who took the time to comment.

The kiddos and I picked winners and I will be emailing you directly.

Have a great day!!!!

It is always amazing to me how many different blacks there are. You really see the difference when you look at all of the different black solids out there each company is a little different.

Charcoal... I think is my favorite piece of Blueprint Basics. Black and white photography is my first love. When I am desiging either a quilt or fabric design I use a gray scale to see what my color values are up to...

Once in a while turn your camera to black and white and see what the world looks like.

I am running late on Color of the Week this week.... Jet lag has taken over my life the past two days... But my adventure to Morocco was a trip of a lifetime and I would do it again tomorrow.

Coastal Fog reminds me of a overexposed, old black and white photograph...I am excited to share a few images that I took in Morocco that make me think of Coastal fog...as far as a fabric goes this subtle beauty is a great neutral.

When you accidently push a button on your phone and take a photo... love a happy accident!

Have a great day!

Photography

Valori Wells-Kennedy - Thursday, April 03, 2014

Color of the Week starts next Thursday. I have been filling my days with color. While flipping through iPhoto today I noticed that I kept stopping at black and white images.

Black and white photography was my first love.... The first art form that really captured me. I will always find some of the best inspiration within black and white photography.

I figured that before we journey on a year of color we should enjoy the beauty of the black and white photograph. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A few of my black and white images. The last couple dating back to my college days. I have books upon books of negatives as well as printed images. Now I just have thousands upon thousands upon thousands of digital images on my computer. Times have changed for me and my photography but one thing will remain the same how much I love the emotion that is evoked with a black and white photograph.

Have a great day!
