Purple (the colour we've been patiently waiting for!) rarely occurs in nature, with some exceptions (such as certain plants).

Throughout history, due to its rarity, purple has been associated with wealth, luxury, nobility and royalty, as well as mystery, spirituality, imagination and wisdom. 

As with most colours, a difference in shade will produce different feelings. A lighter shade of purple is connected to delicate, feminine and romantic energy, whereas darker shades connect to negative energies, such as impatience, frustration, sadness and even gloom.

Colour can be a powerful tool in your photoshoots, changing the atmosphere in your images and conjuring up emotions in the viewer. This collection of PurplePort images has everything to inspire you to experiment with this mysterious and regal colour in your photoshoots. 

If you need inspiration for another colour, check out the other collections we've created in our colour series.
