I love the timelessness of b&w photography and the energy of colour photography. Depending on the subject, colour can enhance the strength of a photo.

I recently took photos where one colour was prominently featured. I feel that using this technique can increase the depth of a photo and make it a bit more interesting. The eye is naturally drawn to the object where the colour is showcased. Placing the focus on a colour can make the object feel more important or significant.

When I shot these photos my goal was to capture one colour a little more than the others. I tried different perspectives, angles and aperture settings to try achieve this effect.
