    Default Ton sur Ton - December 2010

    I have 2 suggestions....

    Complementary colours:
    Create a photo with the main colours being opposites from the colour wheel.
    red and green
    yellow and purple
    orange and blue
    etc......

    Ton sur Ton
    One colour: making a photo using variations of one colour without the use of PP.

    One colour: making a photo using variations of one colour without the use of PP.

    I like this but not sure I fully understand.

    - are you simply talking about capturing/creating images that look rather monochrome at the outset?
    OR how strict is the ONE colour thing? I mean if you frame a green leaf shot so that 100% of the shot is the leaf, if the leaf has a hint of yellow or brown at the edges can it still be used?

    If that is the case maybe the title could be changed to Predominantly 1 colour (No PP)

    If I've misunderstood can you please clarify further - Thanks!

    i think ton sur ton would be nice. if i understand it correctly, if i took a photo of a white cat against a white or black bg, the only color i would see would be the cat's blue or green eyes? it is like shooting something black and white in color.

    The idea is to make a photo in one colour and its variations so different shades of white or green grey etc.
    when Ed says.."it is like shooting something black and white in color.", he is bang on right!
    Here's an example:

    Heres and example from me:



    Ok then - thanks for the example +1

    Ton sur Ton sounds interesting . Your example is beautiful!

    Oh.I'm still confused but it peaks my interest!

    Tor sur ton sounds like an interesting option, although I'm stumped for ideas at the moment.

    Since nobody else is putting forth ideas and it's nov 30, - looks like Ton sur Ton will be this month's level 2 assignment.
    Since some people are confused by what it is, can we still keep yr example in the thread casil?

    Ok then Ton sur Ton is the theme this month (It's better explained and has an example photo in the post above)

    The goal is to capture an image that features One colour (and shades of black to white): Making a photo using variations of one colour without the use of PP (post processing).

    Ok then who will go first?

    Cool idea. I've never heard of this 'Ton sur Ton' phrase. Where did that originate?

    Nice example Donna.

    I think that you're overthinking it Kat. C said that it like shooting in black in white but in colour. a B&W photo is just variations of gray (mostly) so this assignment is taking a shot that is just variations of one colour. the elements are indicated via shades and gradients only.

    I hope I got that right

    Both are wonderful shots, Bambi and Donna!

    Kat, I think it means monochromatic. One hue and its tints, tones and shades- Where if you liken it to mixing paints, white lightens it, black darkens it. But found that way- no post processing.

    Monochromatic color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
