This months challenge is to choose a colour and head out and create lots of beautiful photographs it and with its analogous colours. Make sure there are no complementary opposites, or colours opposite each other on the colour wheel.
Analogous colours are colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel. They may be three or four colours that are adjacent. You may even go to five adjacent colours. This is referring to a 12 step colour wheel.
So red, orange and yellow are all analogous to each other, but you wouldn't add purple or green to this mix.
Blue, through purple to red are another analogous set.
Take lots of photographs and stick to one colour / hue pallete.
Post your photographs in our flickr group. https://www.flickr.com/groups/lensschool
You may find an RGB colour wheel has a better analogous colour mix than the one we learnt in school. You can clearly see from my example photograph above that purple through red to orange make a beautiful analogous colour mix. On the wheel below you can see how close they are together. This colour wheel is used by some modern artists helping them to understand colour composition. For more information see http://www.realcolorwheel.com/rcwplotter.htm
