Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple
The weekly Word Press Photo Challenge is “Purple.” I tried to fixure out, but gave up, how many varieties of flowers have purple in them. Image shot with my Nikon D300 using a 18-200mm zoom lens, shutter speed 1/4 sec, f/22. Note: I used f/22 to make sure everything in the image was sharp.
Key Design Elements
When I’m out shooting for a specific project, like the “Purple” challenge this week with Word Press, I first look for key design elements. Here are three:
- Placement - Where to place your main subject inside the image using the rule of “thirds.”
- Contrast - Look for subjects that combine light on dark, smooth against rough, bright over dull color, vertical and horizontal, or large and small.
- Texture – I often combine two different design elements in my work. The image above uses two different textured subjects (Plus, other design elements) the tree bark against the purple petal. Like the Contrast element, texture increased interest and grabs the viewer’s attention.
Practice using these three design elements during your next photo challenge and see if you like the results.
