This week, your Challenge is slightly more technical. I want you to make a picture using the colour pop technique. For those who don’t know, a colour pop is a black & white picture with one object shown in colour, such as this picture of New York City, taken by Flickr user datawise.
You’ll need to choose a scene that has one or more objects with a bright and distinctive colour. Then, the magic is in the editing – you start with a colour image and remove colour from where it’s not needed. There are several ways of achieving the “colour pop” look and all of them require an image editor. If you don’t have one, I recommend using GIMP, as it is free! Have a look at these tutorials and apps for making a colour pop image. If you want to search, try searching for selective colour as well as colour pop.
If you’re not familiar with image editing, this can be quite a daunting task but it is also a great introduction to using and image editor. I hope that everyone will have a go at this challenge!
So, please take and prepare a colour pop image using these tutorials or any other method you prefer. Send it in to us by noon on Tuesday 26th February.
