21.10.13 - Allison Scarpulla - Atmospheric Photographs
These photographs by Alison Scarpulla looks at a broad range of nature and mysticism. I found these so incredibly atmospheric. The use of lighting, composition and colour give an overwhelming mood to the photographs and sets to right in the place of what might be going on in them.
The use of colour to relay mood especially resonates with me, as its so effective.
I've noticed a running theme through what i've been looking at is a really interesting way of showing emotion is not specifically depicting a figure facial features, which is something i do a lot to relay emotion.
It might be interesting to start branching out my paintings so im not specifically showing a face for the viewer to latch onto straight away.
