I have showed you how to find color in your compositions. Today, I share three photos taken when I choose color as the main part of the composition.
I know…you think I first spied the leading line and shapes in the International Museum of Photography and Film exhibition hall at the George Eastman House. It was the colors I first noticed. It is the color which grabs you first before the geometric attributes take you into the photo.
Besides his humor, Cool Hand Luke stood out in front of Disney’s Boardwalk Resort with his brightly colored costume and juggling pins which contrasted with the natural tones of the resort’s buildings and wooded boardwalk. To further enhance his appearance, I placed him in the right third of the frame where your eyes are lead to first before exploring the rest of the scene.
A yellow Taveta Golden Weaver (Ploceus castaneiceps) bird on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail in Disney’s Animal Kingdom posed nicely for me against the natural background. The contrast of the yellow bird pops right out at you against the rock.
This is my submission for the assignment on Color Composition.
