LAPC – Contrast

LAPC – Contrast

In this week’s theme, we focus on contrasts. Contrast literally means difference, and in photography, it refers to the difference in tone and color. A high-contrast image shows a clear difference between light and dark elements, creating a noticeable contrast.

Low contrast images have more mid tones and are more about differences in tonal range.
They are also softer, with less intense color saturation.

It is as simple as the shadow cast by the lamp.
If one thing contrasts with another, it means they are very different.

“There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in contrast.
-Charles Dickens

    I think I may have seen that lamp with the shadow… I presume it was taken in Malta, but can you remember where exactly?

    1. Anita Avatar

      You must have a very good memory Mike. Yes, the photo was taken in Malta in April 2017 and I remember where I took it, in Spinola Bay.
      Thanks for commenting 😊

        Ah, it’s not where I thought it was. I thought I’d seen it when I was there, but it must have been somewhere similar. I guess there are many lamps like that in Malta!

        1. Anita Avatar

          Yeah, I guess there are many similar lamps everywhere -D

    Wow, that first shot is fantastic – very film noir 😮 But really I love them all – the lamp shadow is another favourite!

    Kontrast i överflöd. Vilken bra idé. Helt underbara bilder. Min favorit är ändå de hängande fönsterputsarna (som myror) 😁 och sedan alla bilder med skuggor.
    Ha det riktigt gott!

    Första och andra bilden är bara så… ja, I’m speechless, och det är jag sällan. Håller helt med Amy! Sista bilden med den lilla nyklippta pojken är “adoring”:-)

    Ah, just great, Anita! My favourites are number one and three – could be framed on my wall.

    Jättefina bilder, ettan och trean är väldigt speciella. Mem jag undrar varför de visas två gånger i läsaren.

    1. Anita Avatar

      Tack snälla. Vet inte varför de visas två gånger fast jag vet inte heller riktigt vad du menar. Har inte tittat i Läsaren.

    Outstanding contrasts, Anita. I absolutely love the sunset silhouette. And the window washers were not just a great photo, but a creative find.

      Thanks a lot for your comment and sorry for late response. I’m without internet since last Friday and can only reply via my mobile phone which I am not used to. Will visit your site as soon as I’m back to normal😁

      1. Wind Kisses Avatar

        No worries. Nothing worse then internet stuff. Good on you for using your mobile. That can be just as frustrating….
