ABC Challenge : Week 9

Next week is the meetup at Parliament Hill - are you coming? Photography Tip

Thanks to everyone who answered my call out for ideas for this week's tip. I'm also looking for your favourite spot to take photos still, let me know so I can do a bit of a round up.


An easy way to make a photo more interesting is to pay attention to colour.

Vibrant colours pop and make people pay attention. Different colours give photos different feels.  This article talks about the different colours and what they do for your composition.

Sometimes it's just a bold colour that jumps out that makes the photo. I think a lot of the photos in our green and yellow category in the challenge have demonstrated how much fun people can have with colour as well as how many different things you can do.

Here's another simple colour tip, and it's accompanied by 9 other simple photography tips - worth checking out.

I'd love to see some of your favourite examples of how photos can make the photo.  Anyone got anything for me? :)
