Creative photography ideas from Creative Sparks – Phil Reid

We had a fantastic Creative Sparks Creativity Workshop last night! Thank you to everyone who was there for sharing your photography and ideas with us. The photos were strong, emotional and engaging and the creativity was flowing!

This weeks featured photo is from Phil Reid. Phil has attended many Creative Sparks sessions as well as some my photography and art excursions. He is a very strong photographer who likes to shoot a wide range of subjects. I choose this image because of Phil’s bold use of color and repetition of shape. I particularly enjoy the sense of depth creating using only color.

We discussed the “push/pull” philosophy of the Abstract Expressionist painter Hans Hofmann as well as the emotional impact of color as areas for further exploration.
