Topic 3: Contrast

Post  Admin on Sun Aug 29, 2010 3:18 pm

CONTRAST (KON trast)
1. To set in opposition in order to show or emphasize difference
2. A striking dissimilarity between things being compared
3. The use of opposing elements such as colors, forms or lines in proximity to produce an intensified effect

Contrast clarifies and heightens an effect. To make a white paper brighter, place a black mark upon it. Punctuate the silence with a scream, a dark room with a candle, and bland tones with a spot of intense color. Contrast is used to draw attention to an area, or to provide stability or clarity to a composition.

Contrast can exist in many realms at once. A thick, jagged, curved black line contrasts with a thin, smooth, straight red line.

We locate and define ourselves through contrast. We compare ourselves to what we are not, we are usually attracted to those who are dissimilar to ourselves. We would be lost without contrasts, life would be boring and dull.

So with all that in mind, I want you to think of a close friend or relative. Describe a way in which this person significantly contrasts with you. You do not need to identify who he or she is by name.

The person who contrast me is very different because not only do we look completely different our personalities and goals in life are very different. An example of this is she has no goals of going to college and doing anything with her life. Honestly her plans are to just sell drugs and make a living off that, whereas I have plans of going to college and making something out of my life. Her personality is destructive and mean whereas mine is constructive and nice.

My Grandpa and i are contrast. He is very quiet, relaxed and laid back. me on the other hand im loud, outgoing and always doin something. Also my grandpa tells stupid jokes thinking they are funny. While i tell jokes that are actually funny and make people laugh out loud : ) also he is very into history and loves learning new things. he is very curious and loves learning about how things work. while i on the other hand dont care how things work as long as they work. also i am not a big fan of going to school and learning new things. got it? : )

Me and my sister are completely different. she is not as feminine as I am shes always chilling with the guys. She works at Fisherman's Dock with all the guys, they consider her one of them. She is extremely fit and in shape, she was in the army for 3 years. Where i hang with the guys, but I don't consider myself one of the them, most girly than she is and she is ADD about a lot of things, and i'm not.
