Color Harmony

With digital editing I can build color harmony into any photograph.  Here is an image I made of a Abilesh who is a computer science student studying in America.  As you can see the room lights behind him didn't make for a good background.  I brought him out to a hallway that had a skylight and used the natural daylight to illuminate his face.  When I balanced the color for the daylight the background turned an unattractive yellow orange. I decided to build a stronger color harmony by replacing the background image in this editorial portrait that is designed to have a high facism ratio to emphasize the cerebral thinking that goes into being a comoputer scientist. Since he had yellow and blue in his clothing I decided to play off of those tones and add some canvas texture as well.  By combining multiple background layers I could create more depth to the final image.

 

Here is how I built this image.
