Summer Colour Inspiration

Summer is a season of warmth, sunshine, and bright colours. As a portrait photographer, I love taking advantage of the vibrant colours of summer to create stunning images that capture the essence of the season.

In my mind, one of the most prominent colours of summer is blue. From the bright blue skies to the blue of the sea or lakes. When photographing summer portraits, I love it when I get the chance to incorporate the colour blue. A blue sky or body of water can create a sense of calm and serenity, while blue clothing or accessories can add a pop of colour to the gallery.

Another colour that is associated with summer is yellow. The bright yellows of sunflowers and other summer flowers can create a playful and vibrant atmosphere, while the softer yellows of a summer sunset can add a sense of warmth and nostalgia to an image. Yellow clothing or accessories for portraits can create a sense of joy and togetherness in the images.

Green is another colour that is abundant in the summer months. The lush greenery of trees and grass can create a natural and organic backdrop for a portrait. I love using green to create a sense of harmony and balance in an image, and it works particularly well for outdoor portraits. Green clothing or accessories can also add a pop of colour and a touch of nature to the image.

Finally, pink is a colour that is associated with summer sunsets and flowers. The soft pinks of a summer sunset can create a romantic and dreamy atmosphere, while the bright pinks of summer flowers can add a playful and feminine touch to the image. I'd love to incorporate more vivid pinks into my portrait photography to add a sense of fun and style.

Summer is a season of vibrant and bright colours that provide endless opportunities for creative photography. Don't be afraid to add pops of bright colour to your clothing choices during these months as they can give your gallery an authentic feel of summer and fun.
