Colors And Moods

"Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions."

Pablo Picasso.

I find myself using shades of blue, purple and red consistently since I started painting as a child. Now I know somehow I'm drawn to the emotions the colors are reflecting. Interesting how seemingly separate entities actually are inseparable 🥀🌈.

If you like cool colors, you like calmness (blue) with sparks of creativity (purple) and intensity (red). But overall you are drawn towards sadness. That is what I've learnt from the experts.

Using flowers in colorful hydrogels, I took this shot with the Sony A7II, on the Sony 50mm macro lens at ISO 250, F/7.1 and speed of 1/200s. The smaller aperture was used to get more of the flowers in focus rather than a complete blur. The faster speed was set to reduce exposure from the strong afternoon sunlight. I upped the vibrancy and contrast at post-processing to increase the color intensity.

What are your favorite colors?
