Project 52-12-7: Complementary Colors
Posted By: djb47, 02-12-2024, 06:04 AM

Welcome to Project 52-12, a weekly challenge using a set list of themes and concepts published in advance. The themes can be subject as well as technique oriented.
You may begin your Project 52 at any time, not just at the beginning of the year. The goal is simple -- take one photo a week for 52 weeks for the given theme. Project 52-12 is hosted by one member continuously throughout the year but every week's challenge is judged by the winner of the previous week. Photos can be taken with any camera.


Rules

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested is eligible. The goal is to have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a theme or a photographic technique for you to explore.
3. Post a single picture in the Project 52 thread for that week. Explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK but try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images. Keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed. Cameras can be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot or Medium Format.
6. There will be one theme challenge labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

P52-12-7: Complementary Colors 2/12-2/18

One of the most widely used color schemes by photographers is the complementary colors. We use a color wheel to define colors and their relationships to one another. The classical and most recognizable complementary color pairs are red & green, blue & orange, and yellow & purple These color combinations are widely used in all sorts of visual communication nowadays. Complementary colors have an intense relationship and they tend to literally boost each other to create a strong color contrast which can be beneficial for your image.

As I am on vacation my time for this challenge is both improved and limited. (More time, less flexibility and gear) Iím going to give this one consideration, but so far no specific plan has emerged.

My impressions of the images in the order they were posted:

@Vaskebjorn expressed a hope that the flower image was sufficiently in theme - it clearly was. I liked the colors and the strong shadow.

@Djb47 gave us a classic crown royal bag close up. Bright strong complimentary colors and a rich textured fabric. Including the stitching in the frame was a nice touch.

My image pushed the complimentary colors out of primary to shades just a bit less common. The background bokeh balls I thought elevated the composition.

@Yaki made us all hungry! The delicate pink against the greens is a nice expression of the theme. The contrast in textures is a nice touch.

@Jcdoss gave us a minimalist image with a strong complementary color combo. The rich texture in the clothespin was a nice surprise as well.

@Noelcmn gave us a beautifully lit arrangement of peppers with the string red/green pairing. Extra points for being stuck at home with only limited images options on hand.

In the end I have to select a winner. For me, the strong minimalism of the image by JCDOSS won my vote. I loved it the moment I saw it. Congrats to our winner!
