There are two sets of primary colors, one for light and one for pigment. The primary colors for light are red, blue, and green. For pigment, the primary colors are red, blue, and yellow.

Photographs featuring bright combinations of primary colors can be quite spectacular. Your mission is to photograph subjects or scenes which prominently display the three colors from either color set, or all four (red, blue, green, and yellow). This is a camera exercise. It is too easy to come up with brightly colored images using a photo editor. We want to see these colors as they exist in the world.

Please put "Primary Colors" in your subject line for pictures you post.

Now, lets add some color to this place.

Here is a little chart I generated in PSP9. On the RGB scale, the red is 255,0,0, green is 0,255,0, blue is 0,0,255, and yellow is 255,255,0. These colors were generated by the numbers and should be correct on any monitor.
