Contrast, Luminosity, and Color…
These three qualities are often thought of independently, but share a very special relationship as they directly influence one another to comprise the structure of your photograph.
I’ve found that many photographers haven’t fully wrapped their heads around the differences between luminance and luminosity, lightness and brightness, global and local contrast…and will often use the terms interchangeably.
So I wanted to dig deep here with a video lesson and unpack the relationship between contrast, luminosity, and color…
Because once you understand how they influence one another, you can process your detail with more precision for a higher-quality final image.
