I’ve been asked to show you some examples of using contrast – what is high medium and low contrast, so here are examples and the 7 essential elements you need to know about using contrast.

How the lightness and darkness of the clothes you are wearing together create contrast
Here are 6 outfits, created with a light top and dark (high contrast), medium (medium contrast) and light (low contrast) bottoms.
This is the easiest way to work with value contrast and to mix colours, using your neutral to create the desired contrast level. It’s very easy to create contrast:
