Color Contrast

I’ve talked about this before but it such an important lesson with photography that it really needs to be remembered. The relationship between dark and light colors can make a bigger statement then the subject matter. It can also give more expression and emotion to an image. I thought this would make a good example as it has such a distinct color difference.


Now I am partly bragging because that’s mine and my friend is holding it for me to get some good shots but the color relationship here is so strong between the yellows and reds that it sucks you in, especially with the black background. Since we are still in fall and fall color is so popular you need to really focus on those color relationships when working with groves of trees.
