8 Beautiful Examples of Colour Splash

20th February 2017

Community member—Stuart McKay—set 'colour splash' as our latest #CanonChallenge.

What is colour splash?

The dramatic result of keeping one colour within an image, and rendering the remainder of the image black and white.

"My first recollection of colour splash being used was in the film Schindler's List. There is a scene where you see a little girl in a red coat walking through all the chaos of the German raids on the Jews, which is really confronting. Just like the film, adding colour to black and white can add something very powerful to an image, and at the same time bring some levity and fun. It all depends on what kind of mood you're attempting to portray in the image." – Stuart McKay
