I found this assignment quite challenging in some ways, as even though there is a lot of colour around us, when I was 'looking' for things of particular colours, nothing stood out to me and I was finding it hard to make my images look interesting. I was beginning to find a new love for black and white haha, however, after a while I found that I started to notice things a bit more and came up with the following final images.
This image makes me feel loud and energetic, which is fitting, because it's an iPod and I play my music relatively loud on it! It makes me feel this way because of the vibrancy of it - it's really bold, which makes it pop!
This image makes me feel happy and cosy! It's bright and the two shades of yellow make me feel warm. I think this is because the colour reminds me of the sun and therefore, I feel warm. Not warm in the same way as an orange hue would make me feel, more warm in a happy, homely way.
This image reminds me of love and passion. I think that because there are white sections in it, it reminds me of those connotations of the colour red, as opposed to more negative connotations like anger, because the white blends in and almost softens the red. It also makes me feel lively too because its so bold and bright!
This is my least favourite image, as I don't like the colour green as much as the other colours. I don't really know why, it's just not a colour I connect with much. It does make me think of the outdoors and nature though, because green is so much a part of the outdoors, e.g, fields and forests etc. I find this particular shade of green quite a sickly colour however.
I really like this image as I feel like the red and green, and the yellow and blue, both compliment each other! Its really vibrant and I love how the lines of colours combine in the overall image.
I think these colors really work well together. The different shades of yellows and oranges in the leaves create a warm, autumnal feeling.
Overall, I find that colours make a big impact on how an image is perceived. The way colour is used in images can portray different moods and in turn affect how a viewer responds to the image. I think this assignment will definitely make me more aware of colours in my images and how I use different colours within my images in relation to the point or atmosphere that I want to portray.
