For this exercise I was asked to look for images that contained both secondary and primary colours. The notes stated that it would take a number of attempts to get the correct colours and they were right. It has taken me three trips out to get the right images, two in the countryside and a trip up to London to finish off.
I did not want to take pictures of doors, cars or any manufactured colours so I set off with the idea of natural flowers and scenes.
I think one of my best finds was an orange colour on the side of a tree in a woods near Guildford. The colour was so bright it looked as though it had been painted.
There were so many shades of some of the colours to choose from that I took out my course notes and matched them against the notes.
For each colour I have three images, exposure as set by camera, one stop under and one stop over.
I was using my Nikon D3s for all of the shots.
Well here are my images

Well this is what I was attempting to Match !
I think some of the colours are very good matches, the orange, violet and yellow.
The green is a better match on the over exposed image.
The red in my view is better on the under exposed image.
The blue is my poorest image when you try to match it against the chart.
I am going to do a little reading tonight and over the next few days before I add any further comments.
A great exercise that got off to a bad start as I nearly missed the violets on a grass bank as I was looking up!
