Contrast

Shooting pictures in black and white takes a different mindset. Suddenly you can’t use colour anymore to attract the attention of the viewer but you need other things. Contrast is one of those things. Now I must honestly say that I didn’t have a black and white conversion in mind when I took this picture, but the contrast between the light part with the birds on the right and the dark left part with the waterfall was what made me take this image. When I saw it on my screen I noticed the little colour didn’t really add to the image and it would probably get stronger by converting it into black and white.

  • Dit is een hele mooie zwart/wit foto geworden en volgens mij is de foto alleen maar sterker geworden.
    De vogels heb ik ook op een kleurenfoto gezien en daar was het licht heel anders, aan de foto hierboven
    had kleur echt niets toegevoegd.
    Het is wel heel anders in zwart/wit werken.

    Groetjes Erica
