People often ask about why I shoot primarily in color.
Most of the time I’m not looking for color pictures. I am looking for something interesting, for a vignette that tells a story, something that reveals an element of humanity. Color is secondary.
Often you need just two or three colors. I think there’s a balance between having something completely monochromatic and having over-the-top color that is just too much or has too many different colors.
A red bucket in the background can spoil a color picture. A red bucket in a black and white photograph is a gray object. You have to edit yourself as you shoot. In some ways shooting black and white is easier because you don’t have that extra problem of color to solve.
There must be a flow and a balance not only of color but also of composition. Then there comes a point at which things make sense and come to rest.
