Most people have favourite colours and science proves that colours influence our moods. I am sure there is relationship between those two facts. Nonetheless, and science not withstanding, I find my tastes in colour varies by the season.

The more photography you do, the more you learn how arbitrary colour reproduction is. The camera, and editing and printing software all add colour profiles; sometimes it’s hard to tell what is real and what is not. A proper white balance helps, but it’s just a start and often the brightness, and saturation of other elements of our photos need to be “corrected” to get realistic colour. My advice would be that the photographer should be the judge of what is right, it is their product after all.

Creative use of depth of field, even in broad daylight, can help create sufficient shades of similar colours to enable good backgrounds and interesting shots (at least in my experience). Try taking colourful outdoor photos at different apertures and ISOs and see if there is a change in the density of colour, there is a difference with some cameras.
