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 )
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!
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)
Great! How can i upload my photos?
Upload your image into the comments field (look for the little camera image in the Disqus comments area below this post) and they’ll get embedded for all of us all to see. Or, when you’d prefer, upload these to your favourite photo-sharing site and leave the link for them.
