Colour Theory for Photographers

Online event

£20.00

Join us for an informative session on Colour Theory and learn about another really important element to taking your photography to the next level.

The basis for a good photograph has always been great lighting and composition. But something many photographers aren't aware of is how important colour is to making a great image.

We'll show you the work of some of the greatest photographers of our time and how they used colour to their advantage to create amazing images. Once you learn to 'see' colour you'll be able to use it to your advantage and your photography will benefit immensely.

We'll also set you some exercises so you can put theory into practice.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
In this workshop we'll explain and help simplify the concept of colour theory, how it can affect your photography and show you the different colour harmonies to help you understand how colour theory can be applied to your photography.
