For instance, I say February...Valentine's Day...and you probably think RED hearts. Christmas? Some might say red and green, others could go with silver and gold.
When it comes to Halloween (and the Fall in general), there is one color that really stands out for me.
But not only pumpkins. If you live in a spot where leaves turn colors, a very vibrant orange shows itself among the reds and yellows found in many wooded areas. Our sugar maples do a brilliant job of surrounding us with an orange glow.
Orange is really a color that doesn't get much press.
And then there's the debate on what came first, the fruit or the color, and was the orange named after the color, or was it the other way around? Not something we can solve here.
I sometimes like to use an orange cast overlay in the Fall, to highlight a particular scene.
Since orange is a WARM COLOR, it lends itself to great wall art. I will often use the same technique in a number of photos, always thinking about images that would make wonderful pairings, complementing each other when hung.
To me, orange is a very earthy color.
Did you know that some Eastern religions regard orange as a sacred color? Orange is associated with purity, as it represents fire, and fire burns impurities away.
Orange is a high-energy, energetic color.
Orange is one of the most dynamic colors to use in photography, conveying enthusiasm and confidence. It reminds us of sunsets, warmth and fire. The color orange can lift your spirit and give you a feeling of optimism.
