The Magic of Monotone Photos
Monotone photos are powerfully simple and convey emotion like few types of photos can. With all extraneous color eliminated, we are left only with light and shape. Add to that a single color and the image is more powerful than its individual parts.
In previous posts I’ve discussed the color red and the emotions it conveys. Let’s talk about some other colors for a moment. Blue for instance, conveys cold, lonely, depressed emotions. “I’m feeling blue today,” is a popular phrase in the English language that simply means “I feel lonely or sad.”
But this is not all, blue also portrays the idea of clean freshness.
Sepia tones also convey emotions, most usually age and nostalgia.
Orange and yellow on the other hand, express a feeling of vibrancy and life.
If you use any type of photo editing software, converting an image to a monotone can be done with just a few clicks. So next time you are preparing photos to upload here at Dreamstime, try a monotone image. You never know, maybe your monotone photo will be a winner.
Good luck and I hope to see you out shooting!
