Color Composition

Color is one of the most important elements in every photographs but just as important is the relationship that color has to the other elements. An entire field of Psychology is dedicated to the relationship of color and the human mind. For us photographers it is a very important element to consider because it can drastically change the overall story of a single image.


I’ve taken on what would be considered a personal project but it is actually much more then that. Now I don’t want to say what it is yet but it does involve fishing, which means that it will be fun. To go back to my point, one of the boats we were using yesterday was red which instantly drew my attention because the relationship between the blue sky, blue water and red boat is a powerful one. Even if that red boat was a dot it would be seen because our minds eye would instantly be attracted to it. When you have that kind of element it’s very important on where you place it in your composition.
