I thought finding examples for this month’s assignment on Color Composition would be easy. I photograph everything in color and seldom convert to Black and White. Lo and behold, it seems I pay attention to shapes, locations and relationships of subjects inside my camera’s viewfinder. That is not a bad thing though surprising to me.
This got me looking for articles to help me locate examples in my archives. Since I am asking you to do the same or, if you like, make new photos to share showing how color is used for composition, here are three articles I found very helpful:
This being the last assignment of the year, I am asking if anyone has any ideas or suggestions for next year’s assignments. You can send them to me by clicking here.
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr, Google+ or other photo sharing site, personal website or any place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then, we can all visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Color Composition photos.
Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time zone), Wednesday, November 21, 2012. Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr. As I have done for all the Assignments, I will put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. I would triply appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, Tweet it, FaceBook it, Google+ it, Pin it, Tag it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, strangers in the night and family. Thank you!
