Framework#2: Low Contrast (B&W image)

August Sander, The Architects Wife, 1926

This framework adopts similar composition of The Architects Wife by August Sander, in which the main subject is positioned in the center of the camera, with a backdrop that is close to the figure in a contrasting color. As a practice of the New Objectivity photography, the contrast is low in order to show the details and provide information as much as possible. To explore the documentary potential of the image, the lighting is set to be soft and flattening to avoid the strong contrast that is more common in staged photographs.
