working with colour

For my article this issue, I thought I would delve into the topic of colour, and how I go about choosing what colours to use on my pages. To be honest, it’s not something I think about too much, it’s just a natural process where I automatically choose colours that tie in with the colouring in my photos. I think it’s fair to say that most colours go together. The old sayings such as ‘Blue and green should never be seen’ are just that – old sayings! There is definitely nothing wrong with having blue and green together on a page, and many manufacturers have produced paper collections with such colour palettes. In scrapbooking, almost anything goes, and in reality, unless you’re going to be using a variety of different collections…

colour connection

Colour is the element that is produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye. There are three properties to colour. First is the hue, or the name we give to a specific colour. Second is the intensity or vividness of colour. Third is its value or shade, being light or dark. Why should you use colour in your work? There are so many reasons to use bright and bold colours in your work, but here we will address a couple of the more important reasons to create with colours. Firstly, for the impact that colour creates; it grabs your attention. Secondly, for the emotion that is felt when you look at a piece. Certain colours bring forth different emotions within us all and any artist, when they create,…

comic book scrapping

In the past, comics were not generally held in high regard, especially as an art form or as quality reading for that matter. Yet towards the end of the 20th century, comics began to garner more appreciation and greater acceptance, and can now be found in many different forms across a wide range of cultures. The term ‘comics’ derives its origins from within early 20th century American newspapers. At the time, comics were generally comical. The term stuck and is now also used for non-humorous work. So what are comics exactly? Basically, they’re a visual medium used to express stories via panels of images, which are often accompanied by text in the form of speech balloons, captions and sound effects. VISUAL ELEMENTS WHICH ARE COMMON IN COMICS INCLUDE: Panels – which are individual…

scrap the music

The first step to taking the best possible photos is to work out which camera suits your purposes best. This decision will be based on what sort of performance you are attending and what camera you are allowed to take. The key problems with taking photos at music shows are your distance from the performers, the lack of good lighting and the crowd. SLR camera: An SLR is the hands-down winner when it comes to taking photos from a distance and dealing with low-light situations. However, many organisers of big name bands don’t allow SLR cameras to be taken into the venue and you definitely don’t want to take one into a mosh pit – you’ll spend the entire show fighting for the safety of your camera as it gets crunched…
