What is all this nonsense. The tabloid racks are the contrast of contrasts. Stories of the super wealthy who manage to have petty problems. Jon Benet's killer found for the four thousandth time. Diets that can never achieve the results shown. Sex that no one can have. Stories of people's lives who will never have any impact on ours. Recipes we will never cook. Shocking untold stories. Trapped again movie stars. Torn apart by monster moms. The hottest bodies. Jen finds love again. Who cares? Not my life or your life and never will be.

Assignment:  High contrast photography usually refers to tonal contrast – the contrast between the lightest and darkest areas of a photograph. Meaning, the shadows will be very dark and the light areas very white. There will be hardly any shades of grey. Just lots of strong whites and blacks. Our challenge this week, however, does not have to be just about the light (for a change!) Contrast can add an extra level of depth to your photos and there are quite a few ways to use them. The use of complementary colors will allow you to add color contrast to your photos. And content contrast is added to photographs by playing with rough and smooth textures, straight and curvy lines, small and large elements, and so on. High contrast photos are not the soft, ‘misty morning, diffused light’ type of photos. They are usually shot with strong or harsh light and are dramatic and confrontational and have a strong message to convey. So fill the album this week with high contrasts creative Framers, there cannot be a yin without a yang!
