Contrast in Color Photographs.


Two types of contrast in photography are Tonal contrast and Color contrast. An example of tonal contrast would be a silhouette. The subject is usually dark against a normal background.

Color contrast works with opposing colors or near opposing colors on the color wheel. The subject, usually in the foreground will stand out better in an opposing background.

By keeping this in mind and using it in your composition you can add impact to your color photo.
