What is va r ie t y? The use of juxtaposition to make you look at a certain part or make the entire piece more interesting. Variety is achieved through changing from large to small, one shape to another and or one object to another.
Examples of va r ie t y Racial Variety (to make the entire picture appealing) Alexander McQueen 2008 Spring Summer collection.(to focus on a certain object)
Contrast What is Contrast? Contrast is when two related elements are different. For example the colors black and white. They are related being that they are both colors, but different because one is light (white) while the other is dark (black). Contrast can also be defined as being the opposite. This photo represents a basic and obvious example of contrast. The background of the image is light but the table cloth is dark. You can also notice the shadow on the left side of the objects and the light on the other. In this photo there is also a contrast in the shadow and lighting. At the top portion of the picture you can see a brighter and lighter appearance in color while the bottom is darker. This photo also exemplifies a contrast in height and flatness. The top portion is flat in comparison to the bottom which gives more dimension in the skirt and bottom half.
Effects of Contrast Adds variety to an image or object Helps to guide the viewer in a viewing direction Adds viewer interest by drawing attention to the differences Keys and Ways to Incorporate Contrast Make obvious differences Add differences in size, color, movement, texture, and things of that nature It is important not to use too much contrast and confuse the viewer This bracelet gives an object and color. There is contrast by adding light (green) and dark (red) colors and opposite objects (ladybug : leaves).
