The Japanese master of cinema Akira Kurosawa continues to be a universal favorite among artists of all ages and expertise. Kurosawa's exceptional visual storytelling is something even photographers should learn from.
What way to begin learning his aesthetic than to start with Kurosawa's palette? Kurosawa, a painter at first, treated his frames as if paintings. Every scene in his later color films is brought to life. As photographers, it's highly recommended to adapt his visual language -- a language that works for everyone yet remains to be deep and authentic. Through his perfected use of color, we hope we can apply these non-verbal cues and nuances into our photography as well.
