Living and learning to have fun with photography.
I sincerely hope you had a lot of fun with our last topic Flowers. I know I adored seeing all your photos and creative ways of displaying them. Today’s topic is Back of Things. Have fun and use your creativity! I have examples at the bottom on this post if you would like some ideas.
Remember that Cee’s Black and White Challenge and Cee’s Which Way Challenge will run every other week.
When to Use Black and White
You are more likely going to get a higher quality black and white photo when there is a lot of color contrast or texture contrast. The contrast will give you more depth when using black and white.
With the age of modern computer software, its fairly easy to see if your photograph will work in black and white or not. I use Aperture 3 (Mac software only) to do my post-processing. I will try and give you some tips and tricks on black and white and various built-in filters. I won’t tell you percentages, because that is going to vary from software to software. Then of course you can always play with the percentages to get the image you want. I usually find the one that fits the closest to what I want and then play with the sliders and percentages to get it perfect.
If you adore challenges as much as I do, please check out WordPress’s Blog Event Listing for other challenges.
How It Works?
This black and white challenge is topic related. For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at the bottom of this page.
Be creative and challenge yourself. Look for contrast or highly textured subjects to shoot.
Hopefully you will find your creative eye will be expanded.
Please do not use sepia tones (brown).
ENJOY and have FUN.

I hope you ENJOY what I chosen for this week! These are all old ones. I tried taking a couple of new shots, but they just weren’t as good. These were all taken with my Nikon D80 with my 18-200 VR lens handheld.
