Colors are more than just visual experiences because of their profound ability to evoke emotions. This is even more pertinent when it comes to the importance of colors in photography.

Within this world of colors and contrasts, the color red holds a special significance. In photography, it has the ability to instantly draw the viewer’s gaze and often becomes the focal point, irrespective of its size or placement in the frame.

It’s a color that conveys a myriad of emotions – from love and passion to danger and urgency. Whether used subtly as an accent, or dominantly as a backdrop, the color red has the power to dictate the mood of an image and tell a story.

This post is a collection of 21 photographs that utilize this power of color red to create compelling shots. We hope this inspires you to look out for color red the next time you pick up your camera.
