Small noises can cause anxiety. Wind whistling through trees can sound like a howling gale. Phosphorescent eyes staring from a forest’s edge can be creepy. Black and white photos can pick up on this perceived anxiety, and produce images that are thought provoking and keep viewers on their toes. ◀ In color, the clouds and ocean at low tide were quite attractive in this early night scene. But the whole scene looked much too friendly. Converting to black and white brought out the sinister aspects of this composition, and also amplified the difference between the light coming from the windows in the beach shack and the textured shadows cast by this light on the beach.

This both divides the frame of the photo vertically and creates the effect of a frame within the frame. 6 and ISO 200, hand held although diagonals can also be involved. A frame within a frame uses elements within a photo to construct a virtual frame within a composition. The virtual frame can be literally created by causing the viewer to “look” through a window of some sort. Alternatively, the inner frame can seem to be a natural consequence of the shapes of the composition.
