Exploring a Warm Violet Photo Composition

As I learned about colors, this time I was exploring more about color composition. So, what colors do represent me? That’s a difficult question. But everytime I was asked what color does make me feel comfortable, I can always think of a warm twilight color. The warm twilight color makes me calm, since I think it represents the end of the day.

The warm twilight color in my opinion consists of violet, beige, and sandy colors. These colors work well to create a pastel color.

Violet is not really the same as purple. It’s a combination of red and blue. But, it’s more bluish than purple. It combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It looks warm but there’s also a cool side of it.

Violet can represent various things: royalty, extravagant, power, creativity, imagination, future, and mystery. Knowing those meanings, I don’t see myself royal though (sometimes, maybe). But everytime I see this twilight color in the sky, I can get in touch with my deeper thoughts, about anything. It’s calming, but also triggering myself to think more. Yes, it’s mysterious.

So, now I had a chance to explore more about these colors. All of these are my photos that I took while traveling. Then I edited them on Adobe Photoshop.

I changed the hues, photo filters to make them warm but still there’s a sense of cool. And also, since I like lomography, I explored a Fuji Reala 500D film color presets on these photos. It turned out look warmer.
