I remember reading somewhere on the web, that if a photograph needs color splash to explain the photograph,
then the picture has already failed. They seemed to feel that a photograph should not need an explanation, that it
should explain itself. In some instances I agree with this statement.
That being said, even though color splash has been over used, especially among wedding photographers, I do
feel that it has its place. The photograph to the left is an example of color splash. Without the color it is just a little
girl walking among the crowd of adults. With the color splash added, it draws attention to the little red wagon being pulled
along. Your eyes move from the wagon up to the little girl. Without the color your eyes may get confused as to what is the
center of attention and may wonder. Now we know for sure.
Go with your gut, and you can't go wrong.
