Colour Theory

Colour Theory Wheel

The Colour Wheel helps to understand what colours work with each other in our photography. Colour Theory explains how we perceive colour and how colours match, mix and contrast each other. Technically it also describes how colour is reproduced in print, on monitors and devices and how it is captured on camera.

Colours project different messages, can psychologically affect what we think and we are used to certain colours being associated with certain things, red with anger, or blue being cool for example.
