Our shoot yesterday at Dragonfly Hot Yoga was one of Pilch & Barnet’s all-time best photo shoots. The space was bright and beautiful and the models were numerous and helpful.
We arrived just as a class was ending and we started sweating as soon as we entered the room. It isn’t called hot yoga for nothing! I can see why this is a great environment for doing yoga. The warmth extended beyond the temperature—there is this welcoming atmosphere that pervades the space, from the people to the layout.
So many models showed up for the shoot that owner Megan Ryan Kaiser was touched. She started Dragonfly with the idea that this would become a true yoga community—and it looks like she’s already succeeded.
The models were impressive in their willingness to hold some really difficult poses for a really long time so we could get our shots. We know how challenging—and maybe even painful—some of these poses were and it was very impressive. We were able to work right from our story boards because we could get every single shot we needed. It just doesn’t get any better.
If my memory serves me right and I can recall the color theory classes I had, any color is possible. Do you use any color though? Typically not, most of the time we have an idea of what we want to use…a favorite if you will. I tend to stay by the hard primary colors and try not to use soft colors all that much, simply because I feel like they are harder to read.
Most of us do not even see the same colors anyway. I remember listening to my physics professor explaining to our class about colors in science and how they work in nature with light. I suppose I take this to heart as well when putting ideas to paper.
Then you have to consider the effects of colors on our senses. For instance:
Of all the colors in the spectrum, blue is an appetite suppressant. Weight loss plans suggest putting your food on a blue plate. Or even better than that, put a blue light in your refrigerator and watch your munchies disappear. Or here’s another tip: Dye your food blue! A little black will make it a double whammy.
So the next time you look at an ad or the cover of a book or even the television, take a closer look at the colors and see how you feel. See if other colors invoke any different feelings for you….you might just pick out a new favorite color!
