I spotted this burgundy Dahlia in a beautiful garden yesterday. The Dahlia was perfect but a wide shot showing the surrounding plants did little to enhance it… even though they were also beautiful in their own right. The plants around the Dahlia were bright orange Red Hot Pokers, a clump of pale pink Phlox, purple Malva and a swathe of golden grass – probably Calamagrostis brachytricha.
Photographing the Dahlia from various angles gave me three slightly different shots of the flower but a completely different background colour. Colour is one factor that makes us respond emotionally to images. So that means that we can influence how people feel when they look at our photographs and read the words on our blogs. How do you want people to feel when they visit your blog?
I’d be very interested to know which colours you prefer to see when you visit a blog or website. Does colour influence you?
Which background colour do you prefer above… Green, Gold or Orange? Why does that colour appeal to you?
Please send me a comment with your thoughts. Thank you!
