Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #18 Contrasting Colors

Complementary

Color theory for photography is really quite basic.  Here is a recap of what we learned in this series.

  1. The Color Wheel.
  2. The colors that are considered warm (reds, oranges, yellows, lime greens) and cool (greens, teals, blues, purples).
  3. The colors that are harmonious with each other or match closely with each other.  Colors are next to each other on the color wheel.
  4. The colors that are considered to be contrasting because they are exactly opposite on the color wheel and bring out the differences.

It is amazing how many contrasting colours are present together in nature.

Cee, I have really enjoyed this series. Many a time we take colours for granted. We appreciate them but they are there and sometimes we do not really think about them. But throughout this series I have learnt to always observe colours of anything and everything:) Thanks.
