Selective Colour – NSFW

I’m a sucker for desktop wallpaper and I’m gradually adding my favourites to my online gallery. One of the types I especially enjoy are called “selective colouring” or simply selective colour. This is not a new technique or anything fresh in digital photography, but I love the contrast between a mostly black and white picture and one, perhaps two, blasts of colour. As the new year dawned over the horizon, I knew I wanted to try doing this kind of thing with some sexy photos and then with other types of images as well.

So I leafed through some images and found some to play with. I fiddled around, tried different methods, and found one that works pretty well for me. I received a Wacom Bamboo tablet as a Christmas gift so I figured it was time to get creative in this space and, well, I’m pretty happy with things so far. I didn’t mean to fixate on red so much, it just kinda happened. I promise there will be other colours soon.

Anyway, the selective colouring gallery is fairly well not safe for work, so if you’re reading this at the office… Get back to work. You can check this out when you get home, ‘kay?
