Colour Theory - 2

Today we were looking at the chromatic values of colour in more depth. Our task was to select 3 of our collected objects and place them against various colours and shades. By doing this I was able to create an understanding of how colour can be effected by the foreground and background contrasts. If you get it wrong, the whole image will become useless.

I documented my processes of colour by taking photos. A lot of the pictures have either turned our dull or really vibrant. This is due to the fact a camera lens works in the same way as a human eye. Therefore when 2 complimentary colours are placed, there is an easy distinction between them. If a colour is placed in a background where it doesn't stand out enough, it will force it's complimentary colour, tricking your eye into believing it's there.
