Photo 101, Day eleven : A pop of color

Today, pay attention to how color affects your images. Experiment with one color, and think about how to feature it prominently.

Today’s Tip: As you train your eye to look for color, keep it simple:

  • Choose one bold color against a neutral background, instead of several colors competing for attention in a scene.
  • Look for a strong color within a basic composition of uncomplicated lines — your pop of color will stand out more.
  • Continue to experiment with light and POV as you shoot color-as-subject — the color may transform as you move.
  • Don’t ignore soft, pastel shades — colors like mint and pink can make statements, too.
  • Juxtapose pastels with black and darker shades.
