More black and white in nature

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #47 – November’s themes/techniques: Black and White Photography

This week's assignment - Photograph nature in black and white. This can be more challenging as we often associate the natural world with colour, so look for contrasts, shapes, patterns, tones. Experiment with high-key and low-key effects.

Whites and blacks dominate

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #46 – Novembers Theme/technique: Black and White Photography

This week's assignment - Make sure you have contrasts in your image(s). Clear whites and strong blacks will add impact and create attention.

Look for the shadow

The 2020 Photo Challenge #45 – November Theme/Technique: Black and White Photography

From Jude’s tips – “What is important though is the composition. Try using a square format to emphasise the composition especially if there is a distinct pattern formation. When you take a picture in monochrome you may have to make different decisions about how you compose the shot.

“One sees differently with colour photography than black and white… in short visualisation must be modified by the specific nature of the equipment and materials being used” Ansel Adams

You can use Monochrome Mode on your camera, or turn colour photos into black and white with your favourite post-processing application.”

This week's assignment - Look for shadows and textures. Carefully choose your images so that you can angle the light to create a sense of depth with the shadows.

Colour change
