Saturation = Dopamine
« on: February 13, 2018, 03:28:05 PM »

These days mobile phones have an option to display everything as grayscale for accessibility. Some tech hotshot on tv suggests to switch your phone to display everything in grayscale, so you will recognise it as merely a tool. The highly saturated, colorful icons are meant to trigger a dopamine response were we are seduced to interact with it.

Made me wonder about modern photography and the often excessive use of the saturation slider...

Maybe it's for the producer to feel at least something within his own work? Self-hypnosis?

Yet another reason to concentrate on b/white imagery!
