As suggested in the brief for Assignment 1, I’ve had a look back through my existing photos with a view to assembling some contrasting pairs. This was harder than I expected! But I came up with some examples that could serve as inspiration for the real thing. As far as possible I tried to have a thematic link within each pair.
1. Dark & Light
The same view on a very dark winter’s night and an earlier evening / longer exposure version.
2. Many & Few
An overhead shot of lots of pansies and a simple crop of a few forget-me-nots.
3. Continuous & Intermittent
A long winding path versus a series of posts at the seaside.
4. Large & Small
A giant poppy and a normal-sized daisy.
5. Solid & Liquid
Solidity represented by a huge old steam train, liquid represented by a still lake.
6. Opaque & Transparent
A chinese lantern before and after drying out.
7. Still & Moving
Bikes before and during a mountain bike jump track day.
8. Straight & Curved
Two contrasting monuments in the same city.
9. Black & White
A dark train station clock at night, and a set of white vases on a white background.
10. Solid & Liquid – same shot
An unfortunate parking accident.
