DOMINANT COLOR ASSIGNMENT
Use your understanding of color theory to create beautiful images that demonstrate compelling use of dominant color.
THINGS TO PHOTOGRAPH
•Look for shapes, fruit, vegetables, nature, flowers, anything with a LOT of a SINGLE color.
•To make your images more interesting, include a "subject" or a "payoff" in your composition; such as a spot of contrasting color, or shape, in your composition.
•Use interesting techniques that direct and hold the viewer's eye... such as: rule of thirds, repetiion of shape, line, high or low angle, or (sub)framing...
•You may use your phone or a camera for this assignment.
•Turn off the camera’s flash.
•GO OUTSIDE! Or at least near a very bright window (color stands out more with bright light, which is difficult to find indoors).
•Turn in 2 unique images, and a proof sheet, shot emphasizing a dominant single color.
•You must shoot at least 30 images for this assignment.
•Pick your two favorites from your shoot.
•After you have chosen your two favorite images, crop them for the best composition & correct the tonality of the photos using Photoshop or your smartphone image adjustments.
•Submit your images and the proofsheet in the Google Classroom "Color" assignment folder.
