I've been asking you to shoot in black and white throughout this course and I hope by now it's obvious why. When you take color out of the equation, you get down to pure geometry and form, and that can make developing and experimenting with your compositional vocabulary much easier. But of course, we live in a color world and so a lot of times, and maybe for you all the time you're going to want to shoot in color. As I said earlier though, working with color is hard, color is an entirely different layer of information that's set on top of your image, and now you've seen the importance of simplifying your image to help make the subject and background more clearly defined. Well if you're adding more information in the form of color, your image immediately gets more complex.
Nevertheless, there are some simple guidelines you can follow for composing with color. Color composition is a very complex subject and we're not going to be able to go in to great depth here in this course, but in this chapter, we're going to take a look at a few simple guidelines and ideas that can help you improve your compositions when working with color.
