Photo 101 ~ Day Eleven: A Pop of Colour – The Orange Berries

Though green is one of the primary colours, I could not get a hold of a photograph with a neutral coloured background. I took this photograph of the orange-coloured berries with its green leaves as background. The normal question invoked by looking at the strange coloured berries – are these poisonous? Do these berries cause itchiness? Can these berries be used as natural remedy for diseases?

THE ORANGE BERRIES

Day Eleven: A Pop of Color
The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something intriguing and meaningful, and can tell a particular story within the frame.

Consider this shot of a blue door in Malta:

Blue Door

The cobalt blue door and powder blue frame not only add a bright splash to an otherwise nondescript image, but also add layers of story and perspective: Who lives in this building? What’s behind that door?

The color blue is whimsical yet strong. To some, blue looks and feels soothing and serene, but also cold and apathetic.

While other shades are eye-catching in their own ways, here, the blue works well. A red door might change the mood of the picture, signaling excitement or danger.

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.
When in doubt, pair an accent color with white — you’ll see its impact immediately.

With the abundance of nature surrounding the tropical environment, we can see many plants, shrubs and trees. Apart from admiring these natural beauties, we must bear in mind these plants generate the much needed oxygen to our atmosphere.
