Red is a very powerful color. I use it in my work all the time. There’s just something about it that’s so striking, jarring.

In color theory it can be used in various ways. In my past work, my red police lights cause anxiety, red fire and demons= fear, red car (in the series as a whole)= 1/3 of the colors of the american flag, red bed= lust, passion… But couldn’t these all be kind of the same (except maybe the american one, depending on who you are)- passionate, heart pounding emotions.

With all that said, I had to photograph an angry person this week, being that the word “Livid” was on my mind and yet, Carmine is the appropriate color for the blood rushing to his face. It was fun experimenting with reverse-mounting my 50mm lens again. With all these Fall/Halloween photos I have planned, there is plenty more carmine to come…
