This week’s challenge by Jakesprinter is “black and white.”
Apart from a B and W college course many moons ago, in the good old days of film photography and darkrooms, I have never strayed into the black and white arena – mainly because I can’t get my head round it and I don’t feel comfortable with the pictures that are produced.
But a challenge wouldn’t be a challenge if it wasn’t challenging, so I thought I’d give it another try.
Granted, I have not chosen a subject that has a lot of colour in the first place, but I think the textures in these pictures don’t do badly with the black and white touch.
I’m still not sold on the media, although I have much respect for those who use it successfully, but I think I might just about get away with this little collection:
