A collection of tones and shapes

Debbies Quotation-inspired image

“Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships!”      Ansel Adams

“Tonal relationships are important for us to understand because they give us the power and choice to influence the viewer’s eye, highlighting what we as the photographer want to showcase in an image. At a basic level, a photograph is nothing more than a collection of tones and shapes. If we can look at an image and understand what the relationships between the elements are, then we can sculpt the image with more artistic intent. Understanding these relationships, I think, makes us more focused on what we are doing at the time of capture, what we may want to do later on with the image, and knowing what we want to say as artists.” Robert Salisbury

Do you think I have it right?
