Color is undoubtedly a photographer’s best friends. We can use it in all sorts of ways to make our photos pop and become more powerful. Color can also be used as a storytelling tool, a way to trigger certain emotions, and a whole bunch of other admirable attributes.

Which is exactly why I’ve taken the time to curate 20 photos from the creative commons that call on color to be the star of the show. Browse through the photos before and take time to think about how the photographers all used color in their composition. Then start thinking of ways you can start incorporating color into your own shots.
