So, of course, the first thing you notice about peacocks is usually the color…simply amazing. But how do you get the best out of your composition?

Composing In Color Requires Understanding The Color Wheel

The color wheel starts out with the prime colors. There are several color wheels out there, but since we are working with screens (on computers and cameras) you should keep things simple and just go for the RGB (red, green, blue) wheel.

When opposing colors meet in a single composition, contrast is achieved in the most magnificent ways. When adjacent colors – like an array of warm or cold tones are together without an opposing hue – low levels of contrast are achieved.
Creatively selecting color when composing your images will take them to the next level. It is definitely an advanced composition technique that you should work with.
