Light and shadow Temperature

Light side dark side 

Warm side cool side

Induced Color

"If the color temperature of a fill light tends toward a certain hue, our visual system compensates by making the key light appear to be composed of the complementary color.

On a camera, this is the result of “automatic white balance.” Scientists call it “chromatic adaptation.” Artists call it “simultaneous contrast” or “induced color.” These are all related ideas, and they’re fun to experiment with."

 From James Gurney :

Or Like (my Homie) Cliff Cramp says: "LIGHT SIDE, DARK SIDE, / WARM SIDE, COOL SIDE."


With and without shadow and highlight temperature variation. Notice how "with" is a much more beautiful and appealing....
