Week 37: Choose a color

Photo by: Joanna Braunold –  Week 49: Red (2015)

Red is for passion, love and/or anger and green is for jealousy, or wealth, or nature. Blues are calming (or boring) while orange signals warmth…or a warning.

Different cultures and different times throughout history connected various emotions to colors. And though we might argue about which color represents which emotion, we have to admit that adding color to a photo brings a whole new vitality to it.

We see color all the time, but we do not always notice it. Unless a particular amazing sunset catches your eye or you find yourself in a field of poppies or rows and rows of lavender. For this week we are not only looking for color but also paying attention to how subtle shades or bold colors affect our mood and perception of the world.

Your assignment for this week creative Framers, is to choose one color (NOT black nor white). Shoot a photo with your chosen color as the dominant color, load your photo and then wait for the COLOR explosion when the album goes live!

Tips and Tuts for this week:
