Photography - Colour and Lighting

We had a session with one of the college photography tutors where we learnt the ins and outs of photography. In this session we were to produce a set of images which experimented with colour. We were to use the coloured objects we had collected, mine being red. I looked at using colour to change colour. By placing coloured paper against the objects it changed their colour intensity. I looked at various coloured backgrounds including complimenting colours and reds.

Below are some notes taken during this session and the final result at the bottom. I think it has worked very well. All the colours are very vivid and sharp and there is a clear difference in the appearance of the objects colours when the background is changed.

Placing the red lollipop on a red background gave it a darker brown tone when compared to how much purer red it looks when on an orangey background. This its the same for the red rose and heart ornament. When putting the ribbon and heart ornament together in the top right picture purple is emphasised in the ribbon and pinks and oranges are more apparent in the heart ornament.
