I have said on a few posts here that the color Red is a very influential color in photography, and must be considered, almost as much as lighting when composing a photo... In other words , as you look thru the camera, RED must be positioned in the frame as to not distract from photo , if not the subject.. The color RED is a very visible color, which draws the eye, consider everyday stop signs, traffic lights, firetrucks, etc.. why RED? --> VISIBILITY! So here in another attempt at debate/ conversation, lets hear your opinions on this.... How much. if at all, do you feel the color RED affects your Compositions.... ??? FIRST AN EYE CHART LOL... Here the color RED in the letter ( A ) of PARKING on the sign , still pops out, even though all letters show none brighter, or more vivid then the others, and also some letters larger... Now in this photo, even though the subject is actually the pier, the distant RED DOOR of the Barn in background , is still going to catch your eye.... and last, an example of how RED can just flat out work in a photo, as the strong color it is! Ok Folks there ya have it, lets here some opinions on this, the color of RED!! and again as always , feel free to hand out the critique on the pics... Come on Folks, don't pass on this, lets hear opinions, New to photography/ Veterans, Speak up lets get it going !!
