Color Study #01 - Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass

20 April, 2017

Earlier i had this obsession on color correction, so I have created a blog dedicated to only to color correction - Experiment with 3 Way Color Correction. I have also created a breakdown of those color corrections in this blog, you can check it here - Weekend Color Correction

Lately i have been trying to understand the Color Harmony that they have used in the Music videos. Sometimes i just watch the video just for color. So i thought why not learn from these. This is the best place to understand the proper usage of colors. So i took a series of snapshot from the video and look for the colors they have used. Here's the result. It is so beautiful.

I will also be posting these images in my Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/sanjeevbeekeeper/

Arupadai Veedu Murugan temple
In 1984 the sage Kanchi Paramacharya was camping at Gulbarga in Karnataka State border when Dr. Alagappa Alagappan, an Ex-UN Official went to have his darshan. He mentioned to the acharya, "How about having one temple for all the six Padai Veedu temples of Lord Muruga at one place and that too in granite?"

Dr. Alagappan is the pioneer in building Hindu temples in USA. First he built Maha Vallabha Ganapati temple in New York and was instrumental in building many others like the Venkatachalapati temple in Pittsburgh and Meenakshi temple in Houston. He was advising and helping as well as organizing temple architects (stapathis) from India to build these temples.

The Temple Complex is on the shore of Bay of Bengal behind Ashtalakshmi Temple.

Come on, I will show you! - Arulmigu Mahalakshmi Temple - Weekend Project - 03.

Here's the last week video. Besant Nagar Bus Stand to Arulmigu Mahalakshmi Temple, Besant Nagar, Chennai.

Mahalakshmi Temple
The Vedas and Puranas say that Goddess Lakshmi has emerged out of the oceans when the Devas and Asuras churned the Milky Ocean. Mahavishnu married Her and They both fulfill the desires of the devotees. Goddess Lakshmi is the deity who grants the Eightfold Achievements (Ashtama Siddhis) and Eightfold Wealth( Ashta Iswaryam). As both Mahavishnu and Mahalakshmi(with Her eight forms) reside in this temple it is known as the Ashtalakshmi Temple. It is befitting to have a temple constructed and consecrated on the shores facing the sea for Goddess Lakshmi whose birthplace is the sea.

The temple was designed and constructed in the shape of ‘AUM’,the First Vedic Mantra, Pranava. The everlasting roaring waves of the Bay of Bengal reverberate the pranava Sound and remind one that the God and Goddess reside in the pranava Sound. As the temple is in the AUM shape it is well known as the OMKHARAKSHETRA.
