The Weekly Photography Challenge – BlackAndWhite

The particular Weekly Photography Challenge — BlackAndWhite

Last week I ruffled some proverbial feathers and made sure to mention that we want you to go out and make a NEW picture for this challenge , which is kinda the point of a ‘ challenge ‘ as there really isn’t a lot that’s challenging about dipping into your Lightroom catalogue and pulling out a photograph through 1984, is there?

This week your own challenge theme is #dPSBlackAndWhite ( Or, mainly B& W )

Omaha Beach
Omaha Seaside

Ideally, being digital photography COLLEGE we want you all in order to push yourselves with ‘easy’ themes that you have to spend a little time THINKING about how to make an awesome picture! THat’s the goal, however we get it – some individuals can’t, and so that’s exactly why it’s not a ‘Rule’ it’s more of a guideline. So , that little gem info out of the way, let’s get on with this particular week’s challenge which is B& W or, more commonly ‘Black and White’ which all of us haven’t done for a good whilst and I thought it might be good to see how you’ve developed!

Battersea Power Station
This is Battersea Calling

Because I simply had a little mini-rant about making this a new photograph and so on, I popped the digital camera on the tripod and photographed my guitars – they’ve made their share associated with grunge-type noises, so I opted for a messy gritty B& W conversion in Lightroom. You can use many different was to convert your photograph to B& W if you take it colour in raw, or just use the B& T filters (if your camera has them) options inside your camera – most digital cameras have a ‘creative’ set of filters including B& W.

One thing I have always loved in a B& W image is higher contrast (as is evident) the photo of Battersea Power station and the hardwood (I like trees, huh) at Omaha Beach are older, depicting my love just for gritty, contrasty B& Watts through the years, and the one beneath was taken about an hour ago, here in my office. ANyways, enough about me, let us see what YOU have pertaining to B& W theme problem this week. (Read on below for directions on how to post)
