Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Faraway

121715faraway_2This week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CB&W) topic is Faraway.  When I typically think faraway photography, I naturally go to landscapes.  But faraway is all a matter of perspective.  If you have a person or object close up front in your photo and a building or farm in the background, the object in your background appears farther away from you.  This technique can work real well in the world of macro photograph. The actual distance can be open to interpretation. Faraway to you could me the moon and starts or it can be a larger noticeable object in your background and a small toy in the foreground.  You just need to black and white, sepia or you can use selective color.  It’s another week you can be creative and have some fun.

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.

Notice how you eye goes to the brightest spot, the spot of road on the top 1/3.  Notice the road on the bottom and how big it looks.  That is the same road after a curve or two.121715faraway_2

This photo I used a perspective exercise a long time ago.  The bottles in the foreground are 6 oz spice jars and the bag of rice just a few feet further back is actually a 20 lb bag.121715faraway_4Qi (energy) hugs

  1. The tulip fields are beautiful. Nothing can compare to those popcorn clouds on a black sky.


  2. I love all of these! I couldn’t pick a favorite, they’re all very cool in their own way.

    Yesterday I saw a scene that would have worked perfectly for this challenge but there was nowhere for me to park my car. :/
