Wheel of Markers
More technical fun. Bought a set of 100 markers and matched them up with a 12 slice color wheel. And captured the extra credit for this week: Product Shot.
Setup and remaining markers.
Complementary colors photography is a fun and different way to capture the world around us. It's all about finding pairs of colors that are opposite each other on the RYB color wheel, and using them together in a photo to create a visually striking image.
Some popular color pairs are:
- yellow with purple
- blue and orange
- red and green
The challenge is to find scenes in the real world that feature complementary color pairs, and then to capture them in a way that showcases their relationship. This could mean finding a red flower in a green field, or an orange street lamp against a blue sky (blue hour is a no-brainer for this combo). The key is to look for those bold, contrasting hues and make them the focus of the image. Of course, you can create your own scene with lighting, flash gels, colored backdrops, or fruit loops. Maybe you could paint a wall blue and place an orange bulb in front of it. Or, you could even use props like fruit, clothing, or balloons to bring in those contrasting hues. The possibilities are endless, and the result is always a fun, eye-catching image that's sure to turn heads. So grab your camera and get ready to see the world in a whole new light!
