January 2013 PAD Challenge B&W photography

Post Tue Jan 01, 2013 1:04 am


The January challenge will be about Black and White photography.
An idea of Norman.

The key to black and white photography is trying to see the world in monochrome.
B&W photography is about texture, tonal contrast, shape and form and lighting.
Good subjects for B&W photography can be portraits, landscapes, street photography, objects of art, architecture and still life’s, and of course a lot more.
I found some tips on B&W photography!

1. Rich textures and detailed sceneries will help your photograph become comprehensible and exciting.
2. With the help of light you can get great contrast. Contrast will bring the tonal differences in your photography, as you can’t use colour. With side lighting, for instance, you’ll get longer shadows.
3. For black and white photography, use the lowest ISO. When you use high ISO the noise will become more obvious.
4. If you have the opportunity to use RAW, do it! It will open up many new possibilities and give you more control of the image’s appearance.

As Norman wrote: “All you think about is the light, no more worrying about colours.”

A few rules / guidelines for the challenge:
Please do not dip in your archives! A challenge is about sharing and learning from each other.
Don’t forget to leave comments for other participants in the challenge. No posting only please, the challenge is about having fun and camaraderie, and to learn from other participants, so check out the images other participants post and comment on at least some of them.

I hope you don't go too far if your New Year resolution is to loose weight.

I wasn't even going to do a challenge but since I shoot so much black and white film, this one seemed right up my alley. I can't promise one every day because the weather probably won't permit it. And I will also try some digital conversions too although those probably won't be great. I've never got the knack of it.

So, #1.
