Matching colors

It seems that, a few weeks ago, I have activated my “color radar”, even if I didn’t mean to do it! 😆




Thus, as I had shot some very simple pictures with gorgeous colors, I decided to associate it two by two, in order to create fun diptychs.
The idea? Put together two pictures of subjects that doesn’t usually work together but with matching colors.

I think it is especially interesting and funny to put together urban scenes or textures, and natural shapes and colors! 😉




Isn’t it?! 🙂




I hope that you will like this idea and that the pictures will please your eyes! 🙂

I didn’t really think of this diptychs idea when I took the photos but now that I have it, I am sure I will have a lot of inspiration for shooting, during the next days, the colors in my surroundings! 😀




If you are interested to shot this kind of colorful pictures (with the idea either to keep them alone or to create diptychs or other photo collages, here are a few advices :

– Keep only in the frame the colorful subjects.
– Cut in the color! Don’t show any background, don’t show your subject (or group of subjects) edges. Frame in the color.
– Kill perspective ! Shoot mostly front views of your subjects in order to flatten them and to turn them into colorful artworks.
– If you decide to put several photos together, don’t associate similar subjects! Put an architectural view with a natural detail, and an urban texture with a dried leaves shot. Go wild!!

It’s up to you! 😉







Have fun!
