Thoughtful Thursday ~ It’s RED!

FIRE!

FIRE!

After a historically record snowfall for the month of January, the Snow Gods decided to have a little fun and send another eight inches of the fluffy white stuff…yay!?


Something to think about when you’re creating your photos is the color of the subject(s) and the color of things in your background. Why? Because the color red will immediately draw in the human eye. It’s normally the first thing you see when you look at a photo.

You could hide it or shoot around it. But you can also use it to your advantage. Use it to draw peoples eyes to where you want them to look. Remember the brighter the red, the more attention it will demand in your composition. In the foreground it will be the main subject of your photo, whether you want it to be or not. In the background it can help create depth to the photo. Want a very strong composition? Place the red like I have in FIRE!, at the intersection of a “rule-of-thirds” grid.
