Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #195 Colorful Expressions

Anne wants me to show how color affects my photography. After studying basic, and intermediate photography I took an eye-opening class in color photography with Patti Felkner at Cosumnes River Community College. After understanding light, composition, and focus points, I learned to focus on color as my subject.

RGB complementary color scheme is Red/Cyan, Green/Magenta, and Blue/Yellow

The farmer’s market is great for finding color

There is something calming in this monochrome image.

I’m still tempted to pick it and blow the seeds, are you?

Some more examples of monochrome photographs

Often I will look for just a splash of color in my photography.

This alpaca was just sheared.

A splash of color makes for interesting photographs. Don’t you agree?

How about this splash of red!

Some more examples of how just a splash of color catches the eye.

Photographing my dog I learned that I needed both an understanding of light, dog behavior, and color.

I still miss my first dog, Liberty Love. Here is her splash of color!

So after looking over my many images, I look for either monochrome images or those with just a splash in the right place.

  1. This is a beautiful display of marvelous colors Marlene. They’re all lovely but I had several favorites. It seems I’m drawn to your monochrome images especially. I loved the alpaca (had no idea what it was until I saw your description!), the yellow and orange building and your dragonfly. Terrific response for the week.
