Indeed, thinking about color can be amazingly creative. Impactful photographs are all about contrast, and this doesn't only occur with black and white, it can perfectly be achieved by using color as well.

So here are 35 colorful photographs from down on the farm to get you thinking about color in composition.

Composing In Color

Composing in color begins with understanding color. The color wheel starts out with the prime colors. There are several color wheels out there, but since we are working with screens (on computers and cameras) you should keep things simple and just go for the RGB (red, green, blue) wheel.

When opposing colors meet in a single composition, contrast is achieved in the most magnificent ways. When adjacent colors – like an array of warm or cold tones are together without an opposing hue – low levels of contrast are achieved.

Creatively selecting color when composing your images will take them to the next level. It is definitely an advanced composition technique that you should work with.
