* DC1 2017 SPRING Week 2: Contrast and Composition...

WEEK2: CONTRAST and COMPOSITION




Contrast: Why is it necessary?

    • Creates interest
    • Directs eye towards the main Focal Point
    • Reason we can see and therefore the viewer can react to what they see
    • Without contrast, the audience loses track visually
  • Ways to create Contrast:
    • Light vs Dark
    • Changes in Scale
    • Differences in Shape
    • Complex vs Simple
    • Focus vs Out of Focus (Bokeh)
