Using Contrast to Direct the Viewer’s Eye

Instructor: Alan Whiteside

Class Availability: Open to All. No registration.

Class Duration: Oct 16, Nov 12, Dec 10

Where: Aarron Youth Center (AYC)

If variety is the spice of life, then contrast is the spice of photographs. It’s what adds that punch of flavor to an image. Photographic contrast encompasses much more than a difference in brightness. And it is important in both color and monochrome images. Several types of contrast involve in-camera techniques. During post-processing, several types of contrast can be applied globally and/or locally. We will investigate numerous examples and show how contrast not only adds punch to an image but also can and should be used to direct the viewer’s eye to your main subject.
