cathy jean.

I recently had to shoot an advertisement for class relating to my age group. Advertising and commercial shoots aren't really my area so I really had no idea what it was that I was going to shoot. I usually get excited with assignments because I already have in mind what I want to do, but my mind drew a blank with this one. Eventually, I decided to do shoes and chose Cathy Jean. Sounds pretty lame and boring but I'm fairly pleased with how they came out. Also, thank you to my wonderful leg model, Nataly Gallego.

(to clarify, these are not real cathy jean ads, not the real logo nor do I claim copyright for the product. this was merely an assignment.)

triadic scheme; part 2/2.

This is obviously the second part of the triadic project for Image & Color. Everyone had to use the same colors they had used for the first part but, they could do it any medium that they preferred.

I chose to use fabric underwater. I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and bought three opaque cloths. I figured the cloth would blend well in the water, especially with all the movement people were causing in the water.

Thanks again to my friend and model, Evy Rivera.

(I really liked this shoot and therefore edited more than required just for myself!)

You can find more of this particular shoot on my website.

triadic scheme; part 1/2.

Triadic Color Scheme - The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel. This scheme is popular among artists because it offers strong visual contrast while retaining balance and color richness. The triadic scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme, but it looks more balanced and harmonious.

This is what I was experimenting with. The colors I used were yellow-orange, blue-green and red-violet. I used different values so it would be more pleasing to the eye. We were assigned to make a piece inspired by Sarah Morris. I originally had more squares and rectangles but, due to lack of colors I had to work with what I had and minimize my original composition. I'm overall pleased with the result.

The is the first part of a two piece project in which we have to incorporate the same colors. I plan to use fabric for the next part.

 (The piece is actually straight. The scanner manipulated it.)
