The colour red – Weekly Photo Challenge – The Hue of You

Good morning from a very warm sunny day here in Hastings – sorry Amanda ♥ Unique So Chic, I know you are going into your winter.  We are expecting 25 Degrees.

Anyway this week I am just going to focus on colours so I went out yesterday focusing on what was around me.  As you can see today is red.

Red is a hard colour to take photos off.  It depends on the actual tones of the red as well as the light.  Even these reflections are as strong as the real deal.  But I gave it a go.

Now I know for sure that these are peonies.  But the colour is a lot less intense than the deep red, with more of a black hue to them, that I saw.

This poppy and the ranunculas are more true to the colours in real life but these were taken in full sunshine as well, while the peonies are more in the shade.  A totally different shade of red as well.

These photos are more or less true as well.

It almost seems as if the black colour of the peonies was absorbed by the shaded light.  Whereas in the bright light the colours were more true.

It is a great challenge for me to go out and see how I can improve my photography based on colour tones and hues.

Cheers from Raewyn
