Vibrant Colour

Theory
Subjects with vivid colours have immediate impact.

Again, this can be one single colour or perhaps two complimentary colours from opposite ends of the specrum - eg. blue and yellow.

For the most vibrant colours, you need good strong lighting - plenty of sun or perhaps flash, depending on the subject.

Examples

[The Mini Crevass - anything red has an immediate impact, and this macro shot of frost patterns on my car is no exception]

[The Green Lens - still striking, but grabs the attention a little bit less than it's red brother. The lighthouse lens is lit from behind by a shaft of sun]

[The Stamping Ground - stage lighting gives this shot a dramatic feel. I liked the contrast between red and yellow gels]

[Blue Luzzu - strong Mediterranean sun (and a polarising filter) brought out the depth of the colours in this Maltese fishing boat. I liked the complimentary blues and yellows]

Hi Caz,

Your blog is the best I've ever seen. Simple approach, but full-packed. There is no other easy way for me to learn and get even more interested in Photography, than reading all what you got there. Everything seems to be very interesting. Thanks for all your input. I still have a lot of reading to do.. Keep posting!

Best regards,
