In previous posts, we discussed color theory and how it relates to your progression in photography.  Complimentary colors is one way of seeing light and to check out a color wheel frequently is just not feasible all the time.  A quick way to remember the complimentary colors of our primary colors is as easy as combining the other two primary colors to the one you are seeking the compliment to.  For Example:
