Using the color wheel, and if I got this right, this gallery should have a bit of harmonious flow to it…(click on the pictures for a better view)…
From dark red to light orange
Orange to yellow
yellow to green to blue
green to darker blue
blue to purple
purple to pink
Yes, no, maybe so?
What I learned this week:
I understand why using harmonious colors would be beneficial. They can either make your subject stand out more or blend in (like the wheat stalks vs the fish). They definitely make things more appealing to your eyes. I keep thinking about my “fashion sense” (or lack of). Or creating food dishes that makes your mouth water when you see it (think melted cheddar cheese and tomatoes). Or placing the photos on my wall in a different pattern, less of a mish mash, more harmonious.
I wanted to include this picture too.
The floral arrangement itself is a real beauty. Just look how they placed the flowers beside eachother, blending the lighter and darker hues together so it flows together, so they compliment eachother. And then to place it on a table with the Carribean Sea as the backdrop…the result is a mixture of art, design, and beauty.
One of these trees is almost completely dead, except for the one branch that gives life to a small cluster of leaves on the very top. Upon closer inspection, they share the same root. Their limbs intertwine and support each other, much like a family does.
It is inevitable, as the days become shorter, that some of my photos will be captured at night. It is something I have only recently started experimenting with, and I definitely have a lot to learn, but these are some of my favorites…
