Photography 101: Pop of colour


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

Tip: As you train your eye to look for colour, keep it simple:
◾Lean toward one bold colour against a neutral background, instead of several colours competing for attention in a scene.
◾Look for a strong colour within a basic composition of uncomplicated lines — your pop of colour will stand out more.

When I was in Sydney recently I was lucky enough to go to Sculpture by The Sea at Bondi on Sydney’s coastline.

The weirdest and most wonderful sculptures with a few mediocre ones all thrown in along the walk from Bondi to Tamarama.
One of these was:

 Glamarama – Linton Meagher. Made entirely of different coloured lipsticks, rolled at different lengths to create one fluid piece. A clever comment on the unrealistic perceptions of beauty in the area.
