This week’s Topics: Contrasting Colors
I love working with contrasting colors because using them can really make your photography pop with just a small amount of color or really pop with color. Color is such a confusing topic. If you look up contrasting or complimentary colors you will get various color combinations. What I mean when I refer to contrasting colors is colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. The basic contrasting colors I am referring to are as follows:
- Yellow and Violet (Purple)
- Blue and Orange
- Red and Green
For example, if you want to stand out in a photo while you are at the beach with blue sky and ocean behind you, wear orange. Even just a little bit of orange will be pleasing to the eye and yet stand out. Christmas green and red are contrasting colors. You will also see a lot of school colors and sports colors use contrasting colors to some degree.
- Black and White Photos
- Roads: country, freeways, streets
- Contrasting Colors: Purple/pink, yellow – orange and blue – red and green
- Buildings: houses, barns, commercial
The Next Series – More Fun With Colors
