Contrast (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

The concept of things standing out in juxtaposition to one another is the definition of contrast, and in photography, whether knowingly or not we all look for contrast. In extreme cases the subject is silhouetted against a background or almost camouflaged. Taking advantage of natural contrast is one of the tools nature photographers use in all sorts of circumstances. In a choice between B&W and color, contrast is almost always the determining element. Without adequate contrast, B&W is much less impressive than color.

  1. Excellent pairing of photos, Victor. And dead-on about the need for contrast in B&W.
