(Cinematography) What is meant by a Natural color palette?
I hear the term 'Natural Color Palette' in film pretty often however I am not sure what the concrete meaning of it is. What colors are a Natural Palette associated with? Primaries? Secondaries. Does this mean there is no color overlay over the image? I would consider all colors "natural" from Wes Anderson's MOONLIGHT KINGDOM colors to the MATRIX'S greens. They're all colors we would find naturally.
Films I would Identify having a natural color palette:
UNDER THE SKIN
VOYAGE OF TIME
TREE OF LIFE
I know a Natural Palette with my eyes but I can't tell you about it. I know most films don't have this but I don't know how to explain it.
