When I say the word contrast, what comes to mind immediately? Color contrast? Light and dark contrast? There is much more to explore.
I apply the definition of contrast to other elements in the landscape, for instance, creating a photograph with movement and stillness in the same frame. How about contrasting focus and blur? Old and new? Color and monochrome in the same exposure might be interesting too! I ask myself often, what can I contrast, or juxtapose, in the viewfinder? Here are a few examples of contrasting elements.
When I put two strikingly different elements together in a photograph, I am asking the viewer to see the difference too. The possibilities are endless and my imagination’s creativity is the only limit.
