Contrasting Colors: Weekly Photography Challenge - Digital Photography School

Contrasting Colors: Weekly Photography Challenge

Image by Pedro Szekely

Last week, in the lead up to the release of our Captivating Color eBook, we issued the challenge to take and share photos that were VIBRANT in color. Today we’re still thinking about color – but are thinking about ‘contrasting’ colors (suggested by a number of people in our facebook community).

The subject matter can be anything you like – portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, abstract… anything you like – just make contrasting colors a part of your image.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Vibrant Color’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSCONTRAST to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Vibrant challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    Let's try this again.

    I combined this challenge with another I participate in that required I use legos. I instantly decided on some sort of red vs. blue scenario.

    Well, I am new to competitions, but am a old and avid reader of this web site. I have now decided to take part in this competition. I have left photography temporarily, with many hobbies on my side. Yet, I have a good archive from which I hunt down one of my good photos, with contrast between black and white. Hope someone likes it.

    I've tried to post several times but have never been successful. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. So hopefully this time it will work.
    I know the example picture is a jelly fish and mine might seem to be copying the idea but I took this a couple of days before I saw this challenge.

    #DPSCONTRAST,- It is the White with light yellow on this side versus the Deep Yellow on that side. We try to peek over the crowd from the back of the crowd to see the playing field between the two competing colors.

    Anyway ....that is the impression that I was left with as I looked through the photos from those that I took this morning. They seemed to fit into this topic "Contrast."
