Complementary Relationships: Study of the Color Wheel - Part 2
Posted by Shayla Simmons — 26 Dec 2012
Purple and yellow are the focus colors of this second installment of three on complementary colors. There are so many ways to bring out the dynamic in the subject in a photograph. One of these ways is to pay particular attention to color and its impact in the photo. Purple and yellow are across from each other on the color wheel, making them complementary colors that present the shooter with infinite possibilities. Yellow and purple can be found everywhere, with particular abundance in nature.
