One of the foundations of composite construction is the contrast. The contrast helps to strengthen the emotional sound of the photograph, making it more expressive, more sensual. It can be built on relationships between black and white or other colors on the opposition of the broken lines soft shapes, symmetry and asymmetry, statics and dynamics, and similar analogies. Opposite contrast, expressive technique is an analogy based on a metric alternation of identical elements, identical components of the photograph. There are a myriad of use cases and a combination of these two principles, both jointly and separately from each another, and in art photography, they tend to complement each other. One of them bears the main aesthetic and ethical burden, and the other is intended to complement, to make clearer the context of the photograph. For example, color contrast can be enhanced by the analogy of forms, painted in a contrasting color.
