Applying Contrast and Tone Specifically to Storyboarding Contrast is useful in all aspects of your work, but when it comes to storyboarding it shines brighter than ever. You can still see the big shapes dominating the compositions, and the details being subservient to them through many levels.

When a zoom lens is framed on characters, it isolates and focuses the subject. With landscapes, keep the horizon along the lower third to give a feeling of spaciousness.

By using Opposing Poses like in some of the examples shown below, you can have characters curved or directed on an arc, other characters have straighter poses, but still aimed on an angle.
