Let’s Practice Color

Colour plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live.  Colour can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions.  It can irritate or soothe your eyes, raise your blood pressure or suppress your appetite. When used in the right ways, colour can even save on energy consumption.

As a powerful form of communication, colour is irreplaceable. Red means “stop” and green means “go.” Traffic lights send this universal message. Likewise, the colours used for a product, website, business card, or logo cause powerful reactions.  Colour Matters.

What is your favourite colour?

Choose your favourite or any colour then take three photos featuring one dominant hue.

Make your subject stand out by using a colour.

Also, to make this exercise a bit more challenging, interpret these three words in a photograph:

Agitation- state of anxiety or nervous excitement.

Desire- a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.

Elation- great happiness and exhilaration.

Take your time and give careful thought to each of your photos, colours and words.  Before you take each photo visualise what you want your image to then capture your image.
