If you want to draw attention, use the colour red! Read on to learn how more about the colour red and how I incorporate it into my photography.
Red is the color of energy. It’s associated with movement and excitement. People surrounded by red find their hearts beating a little faster. Red is the symbol of life (red blooded life!) and, for this reason, it’s the color worn by brides in China. Red is used at holidays that are about love and giving (red roses, Valentine’s hearts, Christmas, etc.) but the true color of love is pink. Pink is the most calming of all colors — often our most dangerous criminals are housed in pink cells as studies show that color drains the energy and calms aggression.
Important things are often coloured red so that you’ll notice them extra well, and see them very well in dire situations.
