This month’s featured gallery is Photography: Colour. Photography lets us briefly stop time and capture tangible moments. Whether spontaneous or crafted, what our eyes see is frozen forever. When the photograph is in colour, we will always have the blue of the sky, the flush of a cheek, and every colour the world presents us. During the month of June, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of the EBSQ photographers that enjoy capturing the world in colour.

The seasons of Spring, Summer and especially Fall scream to be captured in color. While Winter respectfully requests it’s long, contrasting shadows be photographed in monochrome. The vast majority of the year, outdoor photographers like myself yearn for at least 64 individual colors with a handy crayon sharpener built into the back. For film photographers the year started out on a sad note, the end of Kodachrome, you gave us those nice bright colors, those greens of Summer… but, new this year, along comes Kodak Ektar 100 and color film is rejuvenated. At the present I mostly shoot digital, with digital the amount of control the photographer has over the image is nothing less than inspirational! Along with that, new and improved imaging software arrives on the shelves before I have time to familiarize myself with the latest and fastest that I just downloaded six months ago. True Photography’s learning curve has never been steeper on the one hand, but on the other “point and shoot” may have muddied the waters a bit, the difference between a picture and a photograph… as always, in the eye of the beholder? – W.
