Photo Challenge Week 8: Analogous Colors


(Chelsea T) #1

This week we challenge you to photograph analogous colors.

Analogous colors are defined as three colors found next to each other on the color wheel. Using this type of color scheme creates an effortless harmony in a photo.

You can see how Annie used analogous colors when photographing Julie Andrews as the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio for the Disney Dream Portrait Series.

You can refer to this color wheel to identify which colors are next to each other. For example, in the photo above, Annie uses greens, yellow-greens, and blue-greens.

Take a photo of analogous colors and share with your classmates below!

Here goes nothing. I think some of these might meet our challenge requirements, and then others have competing or multiple analogous colors schemes…

Love the sunset, Kreg. It feels otherworldly. Or maybe I feel otherworldly when I look at it.

How about a double rainbow?. The first rainbow you have to look. The second waiting to go after for a pot of gold…
