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 that are conceivable, but without a mandate to duplicate reality. This process also pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography where manipulated colors embellish 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 to be cool and highlights to be warm to enhance the illusion of depth as well as evoking an emotional response: a warm-toned subject appears to protrude from cool-toned surroundings.

The selective use of color can set the mood for a scene, diminish some elements, and emphasize others. Bright, warm colors punctuate a composition: a halo around a figure or a highlight on a hand or face. I will use brighter colors to enhance the contours of the body and muted colors to homogenized negative spaces of the background.
