There are two types of contrast in an image—tonal contrast, which refers to dark and light tones, and color contrast, which refers to how colors appear when you see them next to each other (for example, warm tones and cool tones tend to contrast with each other). Today, capture images featuring #HighContrast, whether it’s because of bright lights, dark shadows, or clever color compositions.
Contrast is important in an image because it allows you to guide the viewer’s eye to the focal point of your image, and it helps set the mood and tone. Increasing contrast also works well on images that need an infusion of energy and drama.
