DOMINANT COLOR EXAMPLES


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...

ADDITIONAL TIPS
•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).

FINAL PRODUCT
•Turn in 2 unique images, and a proof sheet, shot emphasizing a dominant single color.
•You must shoot at least 20 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 your smartphone image adjustments app.

•Submit your images and the proofsheet in the Google Classroom "Color" assignment folder.
