Example text

If you use auto-focus, rather than manually focusing your lens, the importance of contrast will rapidly become evident when it is absent. Try auto-focusing your camera on a subject which is a solid color, or two similar shades of the same color, and the auto-focus will hunt around desperately trying to find a point of contrast to lock on to. Do this where two contrasting tones meet and focus is achieved rapidly. With auto-focus, lack of contrast is nothing more than an inconvenience but when assessing exposure, composing an image or trying to create a sense of depth then it can easily ruin an image if you don’t know how to work with it.

Once again, however, all your camera will see are gray tones. A pattern is emerging here – all that a camera ever sees is tones of gray or, in other words, contrast. 21 CREATIVE DSLR PHOTOGRAPHY Unlike us, the camera sees tone and contrast rather than color. These contrasting tones are used not only to calculate exposure values but also by the camera’s auto-focus system. To understand what the camera sees you must learn to visualize colors as tones. Contrast is important in several areas of photography.

The color of an object as we see it is determined by the wavelengths of light which its surface reflects or absorbs. Colors themselves create moods and are widely used in areas such as architecture to do just that. Colors tend to fall into either warm or cool tones. Blue is a cool color. It evokes tranquility and serenity. In contrast colors such as yellow and orange are warm, creating feelings of joy and happiness, whilst our response to colors like red is alarm, anxiety and a feeling of imminent danger.
