One of the key challenges in portrait photography is ensuring that the subject stands out. Effective use of color can significantly enhance the prominence of the subject:

  • Complementary Colors: Utilizing colors opposite each other on the color wheel creates striking contrast. For example, a subject with blue eyes wearing a blue shirt against an orange background will stand out vividly, drawing immediate attention to their eyes and attire.
  • Contrasting Colors: High contrast between the subject and the background ensures the subject is the focal point. A person wearing dark clothing against a light background, or vice versa, will naturally draw the viewer’s eye. This technique is particularly useful in creating dramatic and visually arresting portraits.

Strategically using colors to highlight the subject helps guide the viewer's attention and makes the portrait more visually engaging.
