Does Low- con­trast work?

Digital SLR Photography - - The Beginner ’s Guide -

Whilst black & white im­ages gen­er­ally ben­e­fit from strong con­trast, low- con­trast im­ages can be in­cred­i­bly evoca­tive, too, if ex­e­cuted well. Whether it be high- key im­ages fea­tur­ing a ma­jor­ity of high­lights and mid­tones; low- key im­ages that con­sist of mostly shad­ows and mid­tones, or just a flat wash of mid­tone grey with noth­ing in the ex­tremes, they can all cre­ate beau­ti­ful im­ages evok­ing very dif­fer­ent feel­ings, de­spite their lim­ited tonal range.
