As much as I enjoy shooting portraits or wedding photographs in monochrome, there are times when only colour will do. Sometimes rich, other times more subtle.
I’ve just been revisiting some shots and a few stood out as examples of those where I think “only colour will do.” Like many things in photography its entirely down to taste.The wedding photographs of Lana and Andy were taken in Aberdeen and the portrait of Lola, in Portlethen.
I’ll add a few more examples show the importance of colour in my wedding photography later.
Or in this case of Dina just walking through a garden, carrying some flowers, on a hot summer’s day. And yet all these colours do not detract our attention from the subject due to her eye contact and beguiling smile.
