Autumn Is Here! Get Ready For the Bursts Of Color

Understanding Color Contrast in Photography

Autumn is my second favorite time of the year. I absolutely love the bold colors of the changing trees and the crisp air. The colors always seem to pop more against a crisp blue sky. Today’s post it going to be about photographing the autumn leaves and color contrast.  There are so many different leaf variations that have their own unique way of changing; I’m sure an entire photo library could be generated if someone had the ability to photograph them all.

Today, I would like to discuss Color Contrast.

Getting good color contrast in your photographs starts with understanding the color theory and the color wheel. On one side of the wheel you’re presented with the warmer colors: shades of pink, red orange and yellow. On the other side are the cooler colors: shades of violet, purple, blue and green. No matter what color you choose there will always be another color that would complement it on the opposite side of the wheel. Choose a shade of purple and draw a line straight through the center of the color wheel to the other side, and you’ll land on yellow…Red to green…Blue to orange… I think you get the point. For every “cool” color there is a “warm” color that complements and vice versa.

Complementary colors are simply more pleasing to the eye. Even if the colors don’t sit exactly opposite each other on the wheel, take for example, red and blue, the complementary effect is still there and still pleasing to the eye.

Keep these complementary color pairs in mind when you’re composing your photographs. A lush green forest is could be a wonderful image, but it could be enhanced with a splash of red or deep pink flowers. A photograph of plump bold orange pumpkin could be interesting but adding the leaves to contrast the orange could very well make the image pop.

For the best color contrast, use the K.I.S.S. method that I use throughout my life: Keep It Simple Silly! The fewer colors involved in the photograph, the more dramatic the contrast will be. The splash of red in the forest scene we discussed earlier can easily get lost if there are dozens of other bright colors causing a distraction to the viewer’s eyes. If you want to create a moody try to fill it with shades of color that are all huddled in one section of the color wheel like the image above.

Happy Shooting!

For All The Photographers Looking For Work

Hey there everyone…Missy here. I wanted to write up a quick post to all of my followers that are photographers or looking to become one.

I found one of the greatest tools ever…well not really a tool but a killer resource.

Last year I was in a bad car accident which is making it difficult to get out and shoot and I definitely could not do any of my “on location” portrait shoots. So I started to stress out about work and money, it’s been a complete nightmare and it has been a struggle until recently.

So because of this mess, I’ve been looking for ways to sell more work online and I found this site called Photography Jobs Online. What it is, is a huge and I mean freakin’ HUGE database of freelance work, tutorials, tools, stock photo agencies and more.

I was in complete shock when I saw the amount of job postings and stock agencies on this database. I haven’t check out the tutorials yet but I will.

It’s also super simple to use!

Here are a few screen shots from my account…

I started with the 7 day free trial but I liked the site so much I purchased the membership the very same day I signed up. In the 3 – 4 weeks’ that I’ve been a member I’ve made 1100.00 with dedicating just a few hours a day around the other things I had scheduled to do.
