I am addicted to salt.  I am.  I’ve given up most vices, but salt is here to stay.  I have unnaturally low blood pressure (70/50), and my doctor suspects that is WHY I crave salt.  So what does one do when faced with a salt addiction?  Become a salt aficionado, of course.  There is a rainbow-hued world of salt options out there.  My current favorite is Hawaiian alaea salt which derives its pinkish or brownish hue from it’s volcanic clay rich in iron oxide.  This next Call is all about the hue as well.  Hue CAN tell the difference, hehehe…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Hue. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…

*Editor’s Note: Please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on I have a soft spot for this gallery, and I want them to know they have our support…

Color in photography has symbolism and meaning that travels beyond what you see.

More than the combination of red, green, and blue or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, color is a visual tool for non-verbal communication: a viewer’s perception and connection to an image can be significantly enhanced by a certain hue.

Strip away the subject matter from a photograph, and what is left behind? Two things. The underlying geometry of the photo, its composition or balance, and the color.  The design and geometry make an image coalesce, become solid, and enduring. Whereas the color carries the opposite message, one of transience and impermanence. That’s because colors are not inherent in objects, but change  and evolve with the changing light – and we photographers know, light is always changing.
