Yellow and a Black and White (Three Photographs)

A number of photography courses and contests suggest that photographers challenge themselves by taking a series of photos that are focused on a single color. The exercise can have several benefits. It forces you to look for things to shoot, it provides an opportunity to work with hue, saturation and luminance to get the colors just right. It can help with learning black and white, where colors become shades of gray (and color filters alter the tonality). It can actually be a very sophisticated way to learn about exposure, white balance and to a degree light (because without the right exposure, color is altered to a greater or lesser extent). And one more thing, it will show you how your camera sensor handles specific colors.
