Chris Marquardt: Color Revisited

Episode 1789 (1:09:36)

Chris Marquardt

Today Chris takes us back to color. Color grabs the attention. It can create harmony. Color saturation can make an image more dramatic, or appear dreamy, depending on its strength. Colors can also suggest depth: closer subjects can look bolder in their saturation, while further subjects can be more faint with its colors.

Conversely, taking colors out can simplify an image. Color grading can also create a mood. It's a key part of any image in movies. 

Here are some examples:

Our next photo assignment is - YOU (suggested by jnspet). Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "YOU" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "tgyou" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment! We also have a mini assignment suggested by our moderator Rene Silverman ... so this week's mini assignment is also COLOR!  So give the concept we talked about today a try!
