Primary Colors: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Image by Mitra Mirshahidi

This week your photography challenge is to take and share a photo on the theme of ‘Primary Colors’.

Yes – this week we want to see Red, Yellow and Blue featuring in your images. You can feature just one of the colours, two or all three.

Feel free to take photos in any genre and of any subject – let your creativity run riot!

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

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPRIMARY 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 Nature challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    Additive primary colors are Red, Green and Blue. Subtractive primary colors are Cyan, Yellow and Magenta. Yet another inaccurate post from the folks at the "school"
