Why Opposites Attract

I have always been attracted to opposites. My friends in New York used to say my dating life looked like the United Nations, but that's another story all together. 

In photography the opposites rule works to give our images more impact and helps us to create powerful stories that stay with the viewer. Seeing a powerful color image juxtaposed against a black and white image makes both images look stronger than a single image alone.

There are many variations of the opposites attracts rule, and examples are all around us on billboards, in editorial magazine spreads and advertising campaigns. It doesn't matter if the images are of people, products or locations, the opposites rules works.
