The color is the key!

Colorkey is a called a picture mainly in black and white except one spot. This spot is usually the most important element in the picture. In the movie "Schindlers Liste" this technique is used as well, with a little girl dressed in a red cloak. The Colorkey is a great technique with the hang to get quickly worn out.

I took the first picture in vencie on this year at the carnival. This guy is far away from wearing a traditional venetian costume but i liked it. Its a costume you dont see twice there. I choose the colorkey effect for the stonger understatement of his original black/white costume. The important element at his costume is the simple red rose. I took it with my Canon 5d MK II and a 24-70mm 2.8 lens (at 70mm and f2.8). Its a photo out of three shoots.

The second photo was taken in Frankfurt at the Main waterline. Frankfurt is actually a very green city and i wanted to show the balancing act between the green side and the big city life (emblematized in this picture by the "Westhafen Tower" in the background).
