Colour Facts For February 2020

Colour Facts
  1. Beautiful Woman Image

    In photography, if you wish to create a certain kind of mood, use high and low key lighting. These effects are important to play with the atmosphere and style of your photos. High key lighting includes a lot of whites and light tones. It is used to produce images that have an optimistic, happy, upbeat reaction. Low key lighting, on the other hand, makes use of a lot of dark tones, shadows and blacks. It is used to create a mysterious and dramatic mood. Since low key lighting has very minimal amount of whites and mid tones, they are highly contrasting and stark in nature.

  2. Yellow Wall Colour Combination

    Analogous colours are three to five adjacent colours that share a common colour. The colours have a similar effect since they share the same colour family. Some examples of analogous colours include orange, red, green and yellow. For colour combination ideas, these colours, when paired together, look rich and deep and at the same time soothing and rejuvenating. If you are trying out this combination for your home décor, do not combine warm tones and cool tones together. This could end up looking plain drab and flat.

  3. Vantablack Colour

    Vantablack is the darkest material ever made by man. In fact, it is so black that it looks Photoshopped. You will be surprised when you look at Vantablack in reality because nothing looks back at you. Until 2015, the colour was exclusive to aerospace and optics. But when engineers invented a cheaper spray-on version, it wasn’t just for techies anymore. Even artists and automobile companies started using the colour. The colour was however originally invented by the British company Surrey NanoSystems to remove stray light in telescopes and satellites.
