Tone Reproduction

Tone reproduction is the observation of density and density differences between an original scene and the subsequent image. There are two types of tone reproduction observation. The first, objective tone reproduction measures objective differences in the density and density differences between the original scene and the subsequent image, whilst the second, subjective tone reproduction also takes into account viewing conditions which can influence the perception of tones.

Therefore when photographing an artists work of art it is usually important to concentrate on a method of objective tone reproduction whilst in the case of more creative photography subjective tone reproduction will become more important.
