Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Flowers

Dahlia
Dahlia

This week’s topic is Flowers.  Here is a tip to help you select a flower which will turn into a stunning black and white or sepia toned photo.  Use a flower that has some contrasts in color.  That will help your petals of the flower stand out more.  Or flowers like hibiscus and iris that have a lot of veins in them.  They will also make your photo pop.  For non macros looks for flowers have more than one shape or type in them, like a bouquet or small garden with several colors and shapes.  Have fun and use your imagination and creativity with this topic.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  Look for contrast or highly textured subjects to shoot.
