color splash

Color splash is a technique to emphasize details- you remove all color from a photo, and then restore original color to a single object, e.g. a green apple on a table. Think of the Girl in the red dress from Schindler’s List.

For my color splash post, I chose to use a parrot. Since parrot’s are so colorful, I thought the vivid colors would be a good contrast to the colorless background. To complete this assignment, I downloaded the app Photo Splash and searched for a picture I thought would give the best effect. I settled on the bird because they are one of my favorite animals and would be a great subject against a bland background. Overall, it was a pretty simple assignment and it turned out well.
