Compositional Design Basics: Contrast

One of the most fundamental basics of design is contrast, and photography is no different. Contrast is basically the difference in visual properties that makes an object (or its representation in an image) distinguishable from other objects within the same field of view.

Contrast stresses the differences between graphic elements in an image; be it contrast in color, shape, texture, tone, luminosity, sensation…etc, resulting in this huge impact of having the contrasting elements reinforce each other making a photograph (or any visual piece of art for that matter) more interesting.
