Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

Welcome to the home page of Cee’s Black & White Challenge (CB&W).  I hope you have a lot of fun with this challenge.

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.

This challenge accepts:

  • Black and white photography
  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white
  • Desaturated – very little color tone left in your photo

With the age of modern computer software, its fairly easy to see if your photograph will work in black and white or not.  I basically use Adobe Bridge and some Photoshop to do my post-processing.

Here are a couple tips and tricks posts I have done specifically for black and white photography.

If you adore challenges as much as I do, please check out WordPress’s Blog Event Listing for other challenges.

How Does It Work?

This weekly photo challenge runs from Thursday through Wednesday.

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.

ENJOY and have FUN.

  2. I love b&w photos, can’t wait to enjoy all the entries. There is so little b&w images posted anywhere, I love the way the shadows through up the details. Looking forward to September challenges! ;-D
