Digital pictures give a clear documentation of what you are shooting and definitely can be a helpful tool in design, in particular, with picking a new color scheme. Check out these 6 places to find color inspiration after the jump.

Whether it's in nature, a city street or even at your local market, color is everywhere. Get out and shoot as much as you can and try shooting each place in a range of dark-to-light, you will be surprised by how this small change of light can effect the color palette. Have fun and don't worry about framing your subjects, simply shoot what appeals to you.

1) Sunsets are a great source for color palette choices, especially in Autumn.
2) Your local market is a wonderful source of color inspiration. The fruit and produce aisle alone can offer some great potential color schemes.

3) Check out local artists and every day interiors like a local sandwich shop or coffee shop. Even the menu can offer color ideas.

4) A flower bouquet can offer a ton of fresh color choices.
5) Layers of rocks can inspire a beautiful neutral palette. Gray and gray tones have become very popular this year.
