The Corridor Community Gallery will feature work by members of Central Alberta Photographic Society (CAPS)

Imagery Comparisons - comparing colour vs. black and white images of the same subject.

There will be two collections of images by various CAPS members featured:

  • Collection 1 on display Tuesday, July 27th  – Thursday, Aug 26th
  • Collection 2 on display Friday, Aug 27th  August – Thursday, Sept 30th

About the Exhibit

The subject matter presented is broad, but it was designed to show viewers a comparison between the power and depth of a black and white image compared to a similar image in full colour.  Not every image is suited to be black and white and conversely not every image shows its best qualities as a coloured image. Look at the light and shadows created in a black and white image; see how the contrasts brings out textures and shapes and dramatize the subject matter. A variety of moods can be brought out in the many strengths of differing colours within a colour image. The golden hour before sunset and the blue hour after sunset can bring out the warmth of colours in an image. Take the time to examine the paired images and see what it is within either of the images that makes one or the other stand out for you.

CAPS is a club where photographers of all levels get together in a social atmosphere to share techniques, knowledge and experiences. We promote photography in our community through education, events, exhibitions and community service.
