Black and White
Moving / Still
I used my newly practised panning techniques from the early exercises to create the picture of the penny farthing. I was rather pleased with this shot.
By contrast I have also attempted to show that it is not the speed of the vehicle that determines movement and so chose a usually powerful vehicle stuck in snow. it's not moving anywhere.
Heavy / Light
By contrast I've used a photo I took at the Xmas markets of these very delicate glass baubles. So light and delicate you are afraid of breaking them.
Many / Few
Hard / Soft
Light / Dark
Straight / Curved
I've chosen two sculptures for this set of contrasts. For my choice of straight, I felt the environment of office blocks in the background emphasises the straightness. Choosing a body in water I feel accentuates the sense of curves.
Small / Big
Road work machinery gives a sense of big just by looking at it. I focused on the wheel to stress the size of the machine. The contrast of a small trolley wheel in a bright red and upside down adds to the sense of smallness compared to the wheel below on the road work machine.
