Think More Creatively With A One Colour Photo Challenge

Written by Gina Stephens

If you're looking for a invent that you can shoot over several weeks or even months have or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English verb used: a go at creating a collection of images that all share the same colour.

As this is something that can lift off quite some time to do, it's something you can shoot alongside your other types of photography or you could try working on several different 'shade themes' all at once.

Your subjects don't have to be the same but it's important that the colour is, that way once you have a few representatives in your collection, you can begin to group them together to create panels and triptychs to hang on walls or post in online galleries.

As you don't know what you'll be photographing until you see it, it's best to take a zoom lens out with you. By doing so you'll clothed various focal lengths to play with plus if you plan on walking for a while, you won't have lots of kit weighing you down.

You can sit and create a enter of items organised into colour groups you can photograph or try visiting a location and wandering around to see which colour would be best to shoot in that hypercritical place.

Do remember that the lack of other colours does mean you'll have to work harder to ensure your composition is compelling. That means you need to pay particular attention to textures, lines, shapes and framing.
