I have always liked to experiment with things in life…
…and my photography is no exception. I recently became interested in the idea of trying to replicate, in camera, some of the ideas that Mark Rothko developed in his Multiforms work.
By deliberately defocussing, slowing down the shutter to allow motion blur, choosing mostly angular subjects, operating in poor lighting conditions, and then beating the subsequent RAW files to death with extreme abuse of contrast, saturation, vibrancy and various other tools during post production in Aperture 2 I have created a series of images that reflect upon the ideas that Rothko developed in the 1940’s.
