COLORED Series: β€οΈπŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™BTS

Over the last few months I have had the pleasure of working with photographer, Darrin Baldridge to capture a series entitled, β€œCOLORED.” It was very refreshing to have my ideas welcomed and captured and lucky for you all, my younger sister was able to record some behind the scenes.

I hope you all enjoy the series as much as I enjoyed making it and please watch below to see how the magic was created!! 

Also, here are my favorite photos from each color, to see the full shoots look back at my previous post.

The power of colors cannot be denied, more so, as it is the soul instance of life on earth. Although sight and the human brain has helped in identifying colors and their delights, it's interesting to note what colors mean to us in totality.  We see certain colors and are triggered to feel or react in certain ways. I hope when you see orange it makes you all warm inside, I mean that’s how I feel when I rock the color. In orange, I feel like a Tahitian dream! 

Now don’t get it confused, color is too dependent on personal experiences to be universally translated to specific feelings but it is still a helpful tool to use when trying to set an certain atmosphere. So just because orange makes me feel like a tropical day , it can mean something completely different to you, but equally important.
