- harmonize with (something) in terms of color.
the general character or attitude of a place, piece of writing, situation, etc.informalan atmosphere of respectability or class.
Remember when I said that “Color and tone emanates the mood and character of photography” in Complementing Colors? Well, this also applies in the color temperature of the light you use.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Kelvin temperature. Let me start by sharing this graph with you:
Color temperatures set different tones. For example, red is a strong color often associated with energy, war, danger, as well as passion, desire, and love. Where as blue, the opposite end of the color temperature chart, is associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, and truth.
Playing with different lights and temperature is a great skill to learn in photography. You’ll have fun playing with tones. And as you master this craft, I recommend you try using different color temperature bulbs, as well as different color gels.
Don’t forget to be creative and free! As always, I would love to see what you create. Please leave a comment with the link where I can follow your work.
