Color and tone are two important elements in art and photography. As the painter Vincent Van Gogh once said, “Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life”. With the right color palette, a photograph can look incredible. We've got a few tips for you to nail the basic color wheel relationships using the La Sardina camera.
Analogous colors consist of colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. For example, the colors yellow, yellow-green, and green are all neighboring colors in the color wheel. When placed next to each other they create a sense of harmony that is very pleasing to the eye because they naturally complement one another. We recommend pairing the La Sardina camera with the Lomography Color Negative 100 35mm film, it’ll bring out the supernatural saturated shades you’re looking for.
Choosing two opposing colors helps to create very vibrant and high color contrast shots. Look for lush gardens to capture strong green leaves alongside wild red roses. Seek out a glowing yellow sun against the blue sky that breaks over a dawning horizon, and rare pairs like violet and yellow or orange and blue found in tropical flowers. And, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can also make your own opposing chromatic images with using the MX Switch and Rewind Knob of the La Sardina.
Reality offers more than just the colors present in the color wheel, and sometimes we miss the tiny nuances of shades and hues. Whether they're pastel-pale or saturated-neon,triadic color schemes (composed of three colors) use complementing colors to create a surreal sense of depth and serenity. Usually, one color dominates, while the other two are used for accents. Green, violet and orange work particularly well together. Pump up the power of your own triadic mix, and attach the Fritz the Blitz Flash to the La Sardina to capture even more vibrancy.
