Tonal range values

The tone of a photographic image is determined by the proportions in which black, white, and gray tones are correlated.

Moderation in the number of tones sometimes provides a photo with greater expressiveness. By eliminating the middle tones, you will get rid of non-essential elements, and photos taken in a certain key will turn out to be very effective.
