STUCK AT HOME: SERIES 2: SHOOT EVERYTHING IN THE SAME COLOR TONE !

WHILE WE ARE ALL STUCK AT HOME, I HAVE BEEN EXPLORING THE INTERNET AND WATCHING SOME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THEIR IDEAS OF WHAT TO DO TO KEEP TAKING PHOTOS AND KEEPING THEIR PHOTO PRACTICING SKILLS IN CHECK.

I came across this idea that I liked of a creative challenge of trying to shoot everything you can in a specific color. For example, you pick a red flower, and your model is in a red dress, and in the background, is a red car…… and you get the idea. So, here is some examples:

Watermelon Shake Filled Glass Cup Beside Sliced Watermelon Fruit on Brown Surface
A PEXEL PHOTO BY BRUNO SCRAMGNON


This was the perfect idea, red everything including the background. Now, it may not be so easy if you pick another color. Have a person in your family help you with this challenge. Let’s pick another color: GREEN:

JUST GOING AROUND THE HOUSE AND PUTTING A FEW THINGS TOGETHER CAN BE A LOT OF FUN.

With green that may be a little more challenging. Now, let’s go outside:

GOING OUTSIDE MAY BE EASY. MAKE SURE IT FITS YOUR CRITERIA OF ALL GREEN, BUT YET, MAKE IT A LITTLE BIT CREATIVE, LIKE THIS PHOTO, AND THROW SOME WATER ON IT, SO IT LOOKS PRETTY CREATIVE. DON’T YOU LIKE THESE LEAVES BETTER WITH WATER ON IT. NOW YOU’VE CREATED SOMETHING THAT IS CREATIVE BESIDES.

Now, the idea to make this last for a while, is to do more than one photo. If you can create, say 5 or 10 photos all of the same color, then you will have some incredible photos. You might also try the art of still photography and become a real artist:

Now you can practice the art of STILL PHOTOGRAPHY, using all the same color. This is one of those special types of photography where you create a special art form creating first, the art, then creating the photography.

The above still photo, is creating a beautiful art object, but, using only one color with the objects. That too, can be a fun way to expand your “color scheme”

HERE’S ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL STILL PHOTO, WHERE EVERYTHING IS COLOR COORDINATED IN YELLOW.

If you want to include your children in this assignment, here is some great ideas you can use:

CHILDREN MAY NOT COME UP WITH AS MANY IDEAS, BUT, ENCOURAGE THEM TO COME UP WITH AS MANY IDEAS OF WHAT THEY CAN FIND IN YELLOW, AND THEN PHOTOGRAPH IT FOR THEM.


Want to get your teenager get involved, ask them what color they want to use: Oh boy, be prepared for the weird colors. How about BLACK:

THERE IS NO LIMIT OF THE THINGS YOU CAN FIND TO PUT IN YOUR GAME TO KEEP YOUR PHOTO SKILLS GOING.

JUST HAVE FUN WITH THIS PHOTOGRAPHIC, FAMILY FUN EVENT. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH YOUR FAMILY WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU WITH THIS GAME. FIND DIFFERENT WAYS TO POSE THE PROPS, AND USE YOUR CLOSE UP LENSES TO MAKE IT EVEN MORE INTERESTING. YOU MAKE IT AS MUCH FUN FOR YOU AS YOU CAN FOR THE KIDS.
