Sunday, I spent the afternoon walking through Oakville with ten students for a Creative Urban Photography walk.
A few pictures here. I thought I would concentrate on colour. And even on a very cold fall afternoon, there is colour.
Like contrasting colour, in this case red and green:
Or harmonious pastel colour:
Or subtle single colour:
Or simple single colours:
Or beautiful fall colours:
Or colour warmed up by a gel on the flash:
So if a cold afternoon can show colours like this, so can anything else. As long as you spot the colours.
Your assignment, therefore, if you wish: Spend an afternoon shooting in the environment of your choice, looking only for colours.
And remember to:
- Set the correct white balance
- Expose well (do not overexpose; use your histogram or a Hoodman Hood Loupe)
Enjoy your outing!
