Color and Shape Symbolism

Studying visual elements in photography (and art). I thought I would share with you some of what I learned about symbolism. Understanding the traditional meaning of symbolism in your artwork can lead to new and interesting photographs, drawings, and paintings.

Enjoy and happy creating!
