Today, I’m experimenting with black and white photography. While doing a little research, three terms kept coming up: contrast, texture, and tone. The following pictures are my interpretation of these terms.
CONTRAST: In the picture of Oreo, below, her black fur stands out in stark contrast to the lighter colored wall.
Definitely have the contrast here with my sweet Oreo.
TONE: The subtle differences in shades of gray in a black and white photographic. Notice how the tone of the photo below adds to the nostalgic theme.
TEXTURE: Strong lines and patterns are made sharper by shooting your subject in black and white.
The texture of the wood grain on the boards of this barn show its age.
Next month, a lesson in FOCUS.
