Shooting In Black And White

12:06 AM

I'll admit that shooting in black and white is a stretch for me.  My eyes are naturally drawn to color and the dramatic effects color creates.  Taking away the color forces me to look for other ways to take dramatic eye catching photos.  The other day I set my camera to B&W and set out to take non-color photos.  Looking for interesting textures and taking them from different angles brought me the dramatic results I wanted.

These photos did go through the editing process.  I used Flickr with the Boost and Holga-ish effects.  Now back to color!

  2. Interesting exercise. I've not tried that. I think I could learn a lot by doing it. I may give it a go when the Christmas rush is over.

  3. And Jen, your photos are absolutely beautiful. Your photography has dramatically changed (for the better) over the past year or so. It's been awesome to watch you grow!
