Black/White or Color?
|Black and white|
|Color, with bright light|
Are you one of those who have a deeper appreciation and understanding of color than most? Can you see colors in a more advanced and nuanced way - well, then (it is said) you are a lucky one. This indicates that you are highly abstract and are a creative thinker who is able to imagine and think through scenarios in a sophisticated way.

I have always liked the art classes when I went to school. As long as we had vibrant colors, brushes, acrylics and some water. When it came to kroki, drawing postures and the human body, I was totally off. I remember one time when our teacher took a chair, put it high on a table, sat on the chair and said to the class to sit around him and paint him. You must be kidding me! To fly without wings sounded much easier.
My artistic side has its ups and downs. Right now it is mostly off - have not been painting in a very long time. Hope to do so soon. I have helped the kids with their projects in art class, nothing more.

I got my first camera in the early 1980's. It was my grandmother's and I know nothing about to take photos. Since then I have been experimenting. And still do. When it comes to photography, I have been wondering about black and white photos compared to color. When I do a search on dolls (any kind) I mostly find photos in color. Bright colors, pastell, taken in daylight and with details. When you look at an image - a painting or a photo, what to you focus first on? Probably on the point of the greatest contrast, even when it comes to black-and-white art. I have learned that truly wonderful photos have a light and dark element that converge and there is great contrast in those photos or paintings. I enjoy both, black-and-white and color photos.
How do you think when you take photos of your dolls and/or paint?
Which do you prefer, color or black-and-white?
