Photography 101 – Weekend Gallery

Black and White

Leach the world of
till naught remains but
stark splendour,
rain drenched earth
lowering skies,
divergent extremes
sketched in
a monochrome palette
of humanity’s devising,
the wild energy of
nature’s spectrum.

I wasn’t sure whether I’d manage to get a post up this weekend as I work rather long hours on Saturdays and Sundays. Luckily I did manage to get out a few times to photograph yesterday but, disappointingly, nothing was particularly impressive. Inspired by a blog I recently discovered, belgianstreets, I decided to try my hand at black and white and had a play with them on photoshop.  I’m a little happier with them now.

I’d love to know what you think.

  1. I saw this post in my email this morning, I was just about to press like and say how much I liked these images and then nearly fell off my chair when I saw that you had referenced my blog…thank you so much, it is wonderful when these connections can be made and our photos can have an impact (big or small). Your images are very powerful, great work. I really do think there is something about mono that tells a story so much better than colour, I wonder what it could be…?

    And good poem too!

    • Thank you. I’d never worked with black and white before and really enjoyed the effect it had on boring pictures. I’ll definitely be using it again. I’d love to see any pictures you create using it.
