Getting that colour palette right

Getting that colour palette right

November 28, 2019

Your choice of colour palette is a personal decision that will help create the mood and look for your photo shoot.

Have a look at our gallery pictures and also check out some of the pastel colour wheels online.

There are 4 main different types of palettes you might like to consider.

Monochromatic: This is when you choose different shades and hues from the same colour. You will see many varying shades all around the same area on the colour wheel.

 

Analogous: This is when you choose three colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel. It is a soft and pleasing effect to the eye which provides a degree of uniformity to your choice of colour palette.

Complementary: This is where you choose colours from opposing ends of the colour wheel. If done correctly this choice will provide some appealing contrast to your portraits. Try to use pastels rather than primary colours.

Triadic: This is when you choose three colours from triangular points on the colour wheel. Try to use hues in the same colour region. It doesn't need to be precise.

Try not to over think your colour palette too much, instead give more consideration to using pastels, washed out colours, denim, beige, khaki and other neutral colours.

If you need any extra help or advice please don't hesitate to contact either Rachael or myself.

We would love to hear from you.
