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.
About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. I love Grenada and hope one day to return there permanently. For now I live in the San Francisco bay area on my boat and am blessed with a wonderful job as a lead Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. My other interests are my boat which I live on, my wonderfully loving dogs, music and creativity of all sorts.
