What makes a striking photo? Often, it’s merely ordinary things composed in an ordinary manner. That’s because they always tend to have a single theme or idea, and because clutter is kept to a minimum. However, in this image, we are looking at the elements of design (line, shape, form, texture, pattern, and color) that turns a simple subject into an interesting photo.

Photographers have cultivated visual relationships conveyed in red tones. While there are different colored chairs at this ice cream shop, the one with a shade of red stands out. So do the red flowers on the window sill.

Color has a significant impact on our perceptions, emotions and physicality. Incorporating the color red into photography denotes passion and bold emotion. Because it commands our attention, red brings text and subjects to the central focus of an image. Will be posting this week images with red as a predominant color to attract attention.
