    Yesterday I spent the whole day walking around Beirut with my camera, so will post a couple of assignments at once. I have included three for this one because they are so different and I couldn’t make up my mind on which ones to choose.

    In the first photo, in addition to color, I also practiced slow shutter speed to show motion.

    As I was taking photos for two lessons, I cheated a little bit and used (or tried to use) the learnings of the next lesson (6) on composition also for these photos.

    Hey Erja,

    You are doing so well with your photography!!!

    It’s great to see you progress and take your photography seriously.

    I’ve noticed you’ve started working with reflections and really working on your color and composition.

    All of this is great.

    In this assignment in particular you’ve done an outstanding job of isolating, highlighting, and simplifying certain colors in your images.

    In this assignment in particular the red colors that you isolated really pop.

    I hope you can see what this does for your work.

    The hard part about this is to keep this idea in your mind when you’re not shooting an assignment that isn’t about color specifically…

    I always remember composition, focus, texture, detail, etc etc but I often have a hard time remembering this critical lesson. Remember to simplify your color scheme and work with colors that compliment one another.

    If you look at the work of any serious photographer you will see that they do this.
