There are several ways we can draw attention to our subjects in our photographs. One way to draw the viewer's eye to your subject is by using color creatively.
Different colors can evoke different emotions. Some colors make us feel warm and fuzzy like yellows, reds, and oranges. That's why those golden hours of the day, when the sun's light is much softer, can make for such beautiful photographs. Cooler colors on the other hand, evoke different emotions. Purple is usually associated with royalty, power, and uniqueness. Green, the color of nature, can be associated with youth, good health, cleanliness, and growth. Blues are soothing and peaceful.
We can use color as the primary subject of our photographs. We can use contrasting color to make our subject stand out. We can use colored filters to create a mood for our pictures. The list goes on.
Try using color to draw focus to your subject. The possibilities are limitless. Here are a few of my own examples.What can you do with color?http://www.dslreports.com/r0/download/455853~56e6548a44de5995704f8fabd854f860/DSC_0048.jpg
