Red is one of the most noticeable and dominant colors, and is one of the primary colors, and has importance in fields ranging from biology to food, art and more. Red symbolizes a variety of things, ranging from courage, love, celebration and attention to danger, anger, seduction and war.

A leading theory as to why the color red is distinguishable for primates as opposed to other animals is that red signified ripeness and allowed primates to find sources of food more easily.

Red works really well in photography as it draws significant attention compared to the background and stands out. Here’s some striking examples of red in portrait photography that are quite impressive.
