T for Tone

as-salām ‘alaykum ( greeting Arabic = denotes Peace )

We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
Max de Pree

Tone and Value is something that when understood can bring quality to a picture. Starting with the degrees of value between black and white, we try and work out the intensity or levels depending on the relationship with the light.  A good image is when the light and shadows have been captured correctly to give the illusion of a three dimensional object. ” Tone really represents the volume and mass of form, and the space between solid things. “

Here are some studies below that I have done to learn more about tones. It sounded easy at first until I started to convert color images into gray-scale!.:)

p.s Apologies if the above lacks depth, it is a large subject for me and will share more, once understood. Thanks 🙂

  1. Samar, I love your tonal photos. I am on holidays now and using a workbook, coincidentally I am up to the chapter on tones. I realize you need to go back and practice tonal stuff regularly to stay across it and work it to the max….it makes so much difference! Thanks heaps!
