When someone looks at a photograph an emotional response is triggered, and this allows for a very human experience. Color has the ability to transform the way we perceive an image—it is the unifying element when crafting the composition of a photograph. We are surrounded by color every day yet we don’t fully understand how it works. Color is one of the key elements of a good photograph but it is often overlooked. Yaopey will talk about the fundamentals of color in photography, and how color interacts with each other to provoke an emotional response that captures the attention of the viewer. Yaopey elucidates on how we perceive color on an anatomical level.
