Theme Thursday/Photo Story Friday - The Love of Color

In my past life I was training to be a theatrical lighting designer - I LOVE theatrical lighting. I love creating "atmosphere" and "mood" with light and... color.

 And I Loved, Simply LOVED creating the light show for a small rock band I worked with in the mid-80's. Especially the opening sequence, bringing up back-lighting on the musicians as they came out through the smoke then pulling up the front lights and moving into a show that complimented the beat of the music. Yup, 1980's smoke machines and stage lighting rocked!

I also love clean white space, it's true.

but sometimes...

You Just {have to} Add Color.

Love these shots, Rose! Great composition and COLOR. :) That sounds like a great job to have - bet you lost some hearing in it though, eh? ;) Some of our friends had a rock band...late 90's though so no cool light show going on with it.

Lights for a rock band! I'm sure you've got some stories about those adventures hidden away. ;) Although you're right some days you just have to add color. Love the swatches.

Wow, not ONLY were the shots spectacular but so was the story. SO COME ON, WHO WAS THE BAND?

U2? :)

When I say "small" rock band, I mean SMALL. It was back in the mid-west. We toured around Eastern South Dakota and North-western Iowa. I don't even remember the name anymore - but it was good times.

Love the color! I don't have a single white wall in my house. What a totally awesome job you had!
