Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Color Me Red
Our Picture This! assignment this month is "Color Me Red." There's nothing quite like red to catch the eye, whether it dominates the photograph or is a spot of bright red within a complementary color field. In fact, one travel photographer we know always carries a red umbrella in his travel kit, just to add some visual spark when he's on assignment and gets stuck with a murky, overcast day. Your "Color Me Red" shots should pop the color as well. You can boost saturation a bit if you like, but keep it as close to the "real" red as you can. We know there's always a temptation to take that control overboard. This shot was made in New Orleans at night with a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. ISO was set at 1600 and exposure was f/5.6 at 1/500 sec.
