Compositions Using the Colour Contrast
Eberhard Schuy is on the road again. Here on the Belgian border, in a field of narcissuses, he demonstrates compositional techniques using colour.
We are initially confronted with a wide meadow with a vivid display of colours. A primer course on the colour and colour contrasts ensues, where we learn the modes implied with certain colours and what their combinations might imply to the viewer.
Not content to simply give us a wide array of colours to delight the eye, Eberhard wants to deconstruct the images. We see through reduction we can make well constructed photos. By first reducing the field and with that the colors, we can then concentrate on making a photographic statement.
By even further reduction of the colour scheme, we arrive at the ultimate contrast on the colour scale and see how this complimentary contrast enhances the photographic statement. As a further study in colour, he then shows how the opposite colour statement can also be incorporated.
So jump in and see how you can incorporate colour and colour contrast to enhance your next pictures.
