This portrait by photographer Kaitlin Jencso is a wonderful example of how to use odd lighting. The harsh overhead shed light creates a gorgeous mixture of highlights and shadows. It is highly contrasted but in parts the glow falls off her brother gradually.
This shot was taken by Leonard Jewler in February, however, I’m happy to see he posted it now. This is such a striking use of contrast and abstraction. Jewler takes the opportunity to view an often-photographed scene and shift his angle to create a more unique and interesting image.
Chris McDaniel continues his series of high-contrast black and white street photos with this shot of two Ethiopian women wearing traditional shawls. The sheer nature of the clothing’s material results in a broad range of tones, creating a softness absent in many of the other images in the series.
