Project 52 Week 41: “High Contrast”

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.

  1. Love the black and white photo. It really shows off ears, eyes, nose! It seems Fall here is non-existent in color. We’ve gone from green to brown to no leaves on trees. Have a great vacation!

  2. I really like the black and white because Kota just pops! The color is nice too, but the contrast is much clearer in the first image.

  3. Nice pics of Kota, just getting to these after a nice weekend in Lake Placid.. Different ballgame when it came to colors on the trees up there. Some more great images to come from Darlene!!
