The color orange excites the senses. Orange invigorates the body and stimulates mental activity.

Desire, creativity, emotion, pleasure, and intimacy…these are all terms associated with the flamboyant color orange.

Color therapists use orange to promote joy and counteract depression.

Orange is the color of the extrovert, the adventurer and risk-taker.

Orange also connotes a creative flair, a sense of enthusiasm, and spontaneity.

And as Frank Sinatra once said, “Orange is the happiest color.”

Colors are known to invoke an emotional response, impact mood, and even have healing powers.

As a photographer, I challenged myself to create images that featured a dominant color chosen for its beneficial characteristics.

The Color Brown

Colors are known to invoke an emotional response, impact mood, and even have healing powers.

Brown is the color of the earth. It creates a connection with all things natural, and imparts a wholesome feeling.

Brown is also associated with the material side of life. It’s believed if you dream of the color brown you will be lucky with money.

American Indians believe the color brown represents the power of self-discipline. Brown brings us back down to earth by calming our emotions and arousing common sense.

Brown is the color of choice when you are looking to create a sense of warmth, naturalness and dependability.

As a photographer, I challenged myself to create images that featured a dominant color chosen for its beneficial characteristics.
