Have you seen the Black & White Photography Challenge on social media lately? If you don’t follow any photographers, you may not have seen it, but in my circles, it’s been hugely popular. I was challenged this past week by my friend Beth to shoot 5 different B&W photos and post them, passing on the challenge to a fellow photographer each day.
I really enjoy B&W photography, but if I’m being honest, it is quite challenging. Not every shot can convert well to B&W. Once you change the saturation of an image, it can be hard to play up the tones if the image does not have a lot of contrast to begin with. That’s something that I’m still working on, and it’s a struggle at times. As a good friend reminded me, it’s important to think of how the shot will look in B&W before we shoot it and to shoot with that purpose in mind. I hope to continue to develop this style, as it truly is one of my favorites. Here are my images from the challenge.
