Shoot More! Week 4
This week we are exploring color! Don't forget lines, circles and squares. How did that go last week? Did you explore cropping to a circle, square, or triangle? Did you explore bokeh? I didn't even mention that. As we move forward you can pull from any of your skills and interests to make your images stronger.
This week lets Explore Color! Choose a color for the week, or if you are shooting everyday try a color a day.
Things to think about:
•The color should be the main subject of the image
•What does the color represent, a mood, an emotion, a warning, is it a cold color a warm color?
-Cool toned colors are greens, blues and purples. = tranquility and calmness
-Warm toned colors are reds, yellows and oranges = Depending on saturation these colors direct us from anger to warmth.
-Bright colors are cheerful, dark colors can be somber
-Create a list of what colors represent, add these to your journal and post it to our Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ShootMore/
•Explore how shadow, light and texture affect the color
•Photograph every day at the blue hour
•Photoshop or app lovers, what about tinting your photos to make a statement after the shoot or even to enhance the colors you captured
People Who Inspire Thought:
Remember this was one of my goals from week 1. How are your goals coming in life, creativity and photography?
In this weeks video I talk about my start in photography back in 1984. I show you a few images from my first series ever, a little about the importance of making prints and a review of this weeks exploration.
There are a bunch of free print places to explore for 4x6 free prints. Let the group know which one worked best. Unfortunately I have not tried these myself. If you have used any additional vendors that you have liked or disliked, add them to the comments and Facebook Page. Explore and get printing!
