Phil Douglis, who runs the Travel Photography blog, writes about what it is like to hunt for color to photograph:
"Expressive travel photography makes the most out of color. Color not only attracts the eye and stimulates our senses, but it also can represent or symbolize ideas that can help us convey ideas to others. To use color effectively, you must consciously look for it – not just take it for granted. You must not only look for specific colors but also how they work (or don’t work) together. Color must be carefully selected and used. The mindless, accidental use of color, more often than not, produces chaotic snapshots filled with distraction that dilute rather than reinforces meaning."
