This is week 30 of our Photo 52.2 and we are exploring split tones. This week expect some variety as we each explore mixing tones in creative ways. Some of us will reintroduce dramatic contrasts to our compositions by combining different tones. Some may toy with the expected mood conveyed by tone, for example with a serious expression from a subject in a light, airy high-key photo. Others will play with tone in post-processing, perhaps with split toning of black and white photos, a technique that goes back to the days of the darkroom. The “split” part of the technique introduces a color cast that can be isolated to highlights without affecting the mid-tones or shadows, or vice versa. The result is a cross-processed look or a duotone effect that can give a little extra punch to a monochromatic image.
