Black & White Sunday: Shape (response to Guest challenge)
To quote today’s guest challenger Debbie Smyth:
“For me the most important point about monochrome is that by removing the distraction of colour, the photographer is able to direct the viewer to the key elements of the image. Going monochrome is one of several tools we have as a photographer that allows us to provide focus.”
I’m going to show you three edits of the same photo I took recently. One is as shot which in this example looks very much like a sepia.
The second one has added colours which is diverting the viewer’s eye from the shape of the subject.
And the third one is monochrome – pure black and white photo. I hope that these three examples illustrate what Debbie had in mind for this challenge.
Follow Debbie’s lead and think about the photos you have taken in colour and try to see what they would like in black & white. Leave links to your “Shape” post and I will display them both here and on Debbie’s Guest Post.
