In nature, you will find blue in places such as water (oceans, lakes, and rivers), a variety of flora and the sky.

Blue can be used creatively in photography to convey emotion in images. Dark blue is deep, strong and moody, whereas light blue is gentle, happy and positive. Depending on the tone, blue can make you feel calm and peaceful. 

Since blue is heavily associated with coolness, ice and winter, it can also convey temperature in an image. 

Find inspiration to use this colour in your photoshoots by browsing through this cool image collection, where blue has been used in creative ways by the PurplePort community in their photoshoots.
