How to construct cool and warm tones based on visual psychology?Red, orange, and yellow are called warm colors. Warm colors have a strong stimulus to human eyes, and “warm” is the visual psychological feeling of the viewer. Warm colors are also called advance colors, because at the same distance, warm colors feel closer than cool colors. The warm color gives a feeling of forward and approaching.
Cyan, blue, and purple are called cool colors. Cool colors have a weaker stimulus to human eyes, and “cold” is the visual psychological feeling of the viewer. Cool colors are also called “fading” because at the same distance, cold colors feel farther than warm colors.

In short, if the color temperature of the imaging carrier is higher than the color temperature of the scene, the color tone of the photo will tilt toward the warmer tone.
Cool tone, also known as cool tone. The color picture contains more tones of cyan, blue, and purple. The cold tone can give people a sense of coldness, coolness, calmness and openness. The methods to create a cool tone include: choosing a cool subject, shooting in daylight with high color temperature, shooting with a light-type color film in the sun, adding a blue filter to the lamp, and a blue filter to the lens. In short, if the color temperature of the imaging carrier is lower than the color temperature of the scene, the color tone of the photo will tilt toward the cool tone.
