Why are light colors bright
The chiaroscuro contrast is the difference in brightness between two colors. Bright Colors shine closer to be, dark farther away. Colors shine most vividly against a black background and fade against a light one.
Illustration: Same color, background light and dark. The geranium stands in front of a light background in the first picture and a dark background in the second. The red glows more strongly against a dark background. I photographed the same geranium from a different angle. The light background is the sky, the dark one a hedge one meter away.
If I want to let colors shine, I set up the camera and motif so that it is in front of a dark background or use an "artificial" dark background, for example a cardboard box.
The leaves of the Liliace glow against a black background.
The strongest chiaroscuro contrast is that between black and white.
