False Color Technique

Using the technique of false color, I produce a restrained color palette. The method is inspired by my training in oil painting, imagining colors rather than duplicating reality. This process also pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography where imagined colors provide an alternative to reality. This process helps shift the plot toward the realm of fiction. Through this often painterly effect, color is applied selectively to areas of the image. This connects me to my training as a painter, tinting shadows and highlights differently in order to give a greater illusion of depth as well as evoking an emotional response. Additionally, a warm-toned subject appears to protrude from cool-toned surroundings.
