Create contrast with complementary colors

JJWP375

Article Excerpt: “What makes an image colorful? Is it the mere presence of bright colors, or is it something more than that? Color isn’t always about having bright reds and striking blues. It results from creating color contrast in your photos and using complementary colors whenever you can…Let’s not make this more complicated than it needs to be. Complementary colors are different colors that, when placed next to one color, increase the total color contrast in the image. But a complementary can’t just be a different shade of one color…It needs to be a different type of color altogether.”~David Peterson from his article Make Your Photos More Colorful with Complementary Colors
