Welcome to week 41 of our Professional Pet Photography Blog Circle! This week’s topic is: High Contrast
A high contrasting photo contains strong “contrasting” elements. There is a strong “difference”. In a black and white image there will be strong blacks and whites and few gray tones. In an image with color, rainy days will result in lower contrast, while sunny, bright days result in higher contrast.
I decided to share a black and white image, and a color image this week to show contrast both ways. In this black and white image, the histogram displayed a dip in the middle.
For the color image I would have loved to have shown a nice contrast in reds and oranges with autumn colors. This week, we only went from green to yellow. We are still waiting on the season change! This was taken with my 24-70 mm lens at f2.8. I increased the contrast slider to the right in lightroom to get the intense yellows of the trees.
Short post this week as were are hopping in the car now and heading to Lake Placid, NY for a few days of vacation! We were looking forward to cooler weather until I just checked their updated forecast and see that it’s supposed to be in the 70’s this weekend – ugh!!! We will make the best of it!!!
