Join Megan Andersen for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating striking images with contrast, part of Advanced Craft Photography.
Using contrasting colors in your craft photography is a great way to really …offset what you've made. Pay attention to the backgrounds that you …can find. And think about what color your craft is. …In this case, I've got a little blue elephant, and I really want to make him …pop off my page. So I was walking around the garden …looking for something that would make him just stand out a little bit more, and I …found this great yellow bush. The hue of it is quite a bit li, lighter …than the elephant itself, but, right next to it is this red plant.…
So, while the red bush is the same tone as the elephant, it's actually, you know, …quite a different color and the contrast is so nice. …So, I'm just going to nestle my elephant right between the red and the yellow. …And it's really making the blue pop out. It's actually also bringing out, kind of, …the blue in his eyes and his cute little eyelashes, so I'm really happy with this setting. …I'm going to take a couple of pictures and see how it looks. …
