20160907: Color knock out lesson

20160715-ricardo-casa-4978color-knockoutfb

From the Quinta series, I am working on the e-book and this is a favor photo of mine.

The tiles are too busy both in black & white and in Color.

But in the e-book I wanted you to see both. Putting a insert of the tiles by themselves was my first idea, but it just did not have that effect I wanted.

With this color knockout, I get want I wanted. It calms the image down. Just enough color for the mind to perceive the colors, a set of special tiles different  in the center, B/W or color it stood out. So by changing those tiles it does just that, sets them apart but does just calm down the whole image.

You have to kind of look at the image to realize those 5 tile are color while the rest is black& white. They don’t jump out at you.

The rest of the image is busy in black & white, but just a touch of color settles it all down.

I enjoy helping people so please feel free to ask questions or leave comments below.

Creative shooting folks!
