The Red Rule of Photography
Hard to believe perhaps but the author of Red Is Best — who thinks she knows a few things about taking pictures — learned only just last spring that there is a “Red Rule” of photography, which is quite simply:
Looking at my Instagram posts, I was surprised how few contained red before I started a “Capture Your 365” challenge during “Red” week. Was there really so little red in my world? Or did I just need to start being more observant? (Posts since “Red” week would suggest I haven’t yet!)
I forgot about Instagram “squaring up” photos when I posted this one (my favourite for the week) in response to Red: Multiples. I’m still posting my “CY365” photos on Instagram. I hope you’ll check them out and follow me there!
