the only time this really bugs me is when it's a period piece that looks a lil too tarted up and candy-coated

Winter Wipeout Zone, teal contestants/obstacles/water accented by orange fire


Clearly this photo was tampered with, because these colors occur nowhere together in real life.

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 8 February 2011 05:19 (ten years ago) link

I think the "teal & orange" thing is like when you learn the meaning of a new word, and then suddenly you hear and notice that word in print everywhere. Even though they were always there.

The place where it goes bad is when people start pretending like teal and orange is a totally unacceptable color combination, and is totally made up, and is taking over our lives.

Seriously, Jordan, after the first three-ish photos you posted, none of them contain unusual amounts of teal OR orange.

bad color grading has gone beyond t&o. now we've got stuff like ozark, which puts a single color filter over everything.

seriously, use more colors, you digital videos.

Ironically even the TinyPic logos up the thread are teal and orange. The internet decays into teal and orange. Scrape away the face, smash open the skull, scoop out the brain and what remains is teal and orange.

Started watching a few minutes of Worth last night which is excessively Teal & Orange. At first I wondered if this was a clever nod to the past, but then thought it wasn’t a thing until the late 00s - so perhaps just lazy filmaking?

A spot of teal and orange talk on this dissection of the colours of Skyfall and Spectre (which is slightly undermined by them being as forgettable as each other in my mind)

London and MI6 in particular are the only locations defined by what we might call a teal-and-orange palette; a sort of idling-state palette for Bond's home, but one where the desaturation implies a nice sort of decrepitude and rot. pic.twitter.com/IlvmhvhpcW

This thread is making me nostalgic: teal, orange and gray were the colors in shops in 1999 when I was fifteen and buying my first set of Nice Grown-Up Clothes for a school exchange. I had a beautiful soft gray sweater from the Gap with bands of dark gray, dusty teal, and dusty orange on the sleeves. It was my favorite sweater for years until it tragically shrank in the wash.

Lily Dale, Thursday, 11 November 2021 22:33 (two months ago) link

that thread on Skyfall/Spectre is really good, disagree that they're both forgettable.

I don't like Bond movies much at all but I thought Skyfall was one of the best I'd seen whereas Spectre was largely unmemorable - that thread articulates at least partly why that was the case.

Sludge: the new teal & orange. I don't watch enough TV (he lied) to spot the trend but I noticed how desaturated The Tourist was before I saw this article.
