  • Found in Nature
  • Big Subjects
  • Small Subjects

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.

  1. I love those cats in the kitty bed together! That’s just adorable. My cats will snuggle with the dog (much to her dismay) but never each other!


  2. I love the close-up of the pug’s great expression and the happy terrier on the beach is cute too!
