Us­ing a sin­gle colour as the main sub­ject brought a fo­cus to our pho­tog­ra­phy

YOUR PHOTO CHAL­LENGE: GO SHOOT… A splash of red

NPhoto - - Contributors -

Just like the lone tree chal­lenge, a pho­tog­ra­phy project that finds favour with both ex­pe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­phers and new­com­ers alike is the shoot-a-sin­gle-colour one. Red is typ­i­cally the de­fault op­tion in th­ese im­ages.

We wanted to cap­ture a sense of the chang­ing sea­son with this one, so we aimed to find nat­u­ral splashes of red rather than man-made ones. Red pro­vides a clear, vivid fo­cal point in a pic­ture even when it features quite small in the frame. Chris was drawn to th­ese berries and used his 70-200mm f/2.8 lens at its max­i­mum f/2.8 aper­ture in or­der to nar­row the depth of field and en­sure the thin stalks didn’t get lost against the rel­a­tively busy back­ground.
