Use Color for Best Effect
Miro has used red in the foreground, middle and top of the image to create this beautiful image.
Use a color highlight: when the range of color in a scene is limited the color used in the becomes important. Color such as lipstick in a portrait helps draw attention to the subject or flowers in a nature shot can frame the visual flow of the landscape.
KathrynDiane has used pinkish highlights to frame the image.
Use a dominant color: You can strengthen the impact of a color by shooting it against a contrasting or plain color. In the example the yellow contrasts strongly with the red giving the image an almost 3d quality.
- The stronger the light you use to illuminate your main object the brighter its colors will look.
- Under exposing an image by -1/2 or -1 stop can make colors deeper and richer.
- A colored object looks stronger when viewed against light surroundings.
