Bahama Mama copy2

Color can be used in a supplementary manner or can be the main focus of an image. This example combines the 2 approaches. In outdoor photography, the use of color is a matter of recognizing and selecting combinations that already exist, and the opportunities for manipulating the colours in a scene are limited mainly to the framing or kind of light. In the studio your options are limitless with prop selection, backgrounds and light intensity. This image certainly builds on the rule of thirds, and combines complimentary colors, and note the subtle rhythm of the repeating grass shape with the repeating letters. All combine to produce a pleasing ‘wish you were here’ moment. Enjoy.
