color contrast pictures

There are two types of contrast in photography: tonal contrast and color contrast. Today, we’re asking you to experiment with the latter.

Color contrast refers to the way colors interact with each other. A good rule of thumb is that opposites on the color scale (for example green and red) contrast strongly. Cold colors and warm colors pretty much always contrast, as well as light colors versus dark ones, and so it goes. Today, keep an eye out for contrasting colors, and share your captures with the hashtag #ColorContrast!
