MARCH ZINE THEME: Inspired by French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, our first contributor led Zine theme is Geometry & Vibrant Colour. See our exhibition review for inspiration.
Bourdin uses bold and vibrant colours in many of his photographs and adopts a very geometric approach to composition – his images are full of shapes and lines. He often sketched out his shots prior to taking an image, taking great care to position each object and backdrop in the manner in which he wanted. The results are beautifully colourful, expertly composed graphic images.
TIP: In order to capture bold and vibrant colours in your photographs you need to think about light. Pick a suitable day to shoot on – a sunny & crisp winter’s day is perfect for capturing colour.
Adjust your Picture Style or Picture Control profile settings for increased colour saturation. These are a set of in-camera processing options, where amongst other options you can control colour saturation. If you increase the levels of saturation, colours will appear more vibrant. Check your camera’s manual for the location of these options in your camera.
When shooting underexpose your shot by between 1/3 stop and 2/3 stop to increase the intensity of the colours in your shot
We can’t wait to see the results.
