This week’s challenge is quite a challenge for me: I have never shot in black and white! Aaaaand I still haven’t. I don’t have time to try to figure out my phone’s settings, though I would like to sometime.
Instead, I used Google Photos editing to convert some of my previous photos into black and white by setting saturation to zero (and also playing with the contrast). This is also something I have never really done, and I was quite pleased with the results.
I took this photo recently at my mom’s house and thought the lighting and shadows really made it suited to black and white. I liked the sunny yellow of the flowers but this is also a cool way to see it.
I also thought my cat Juhani would be well suited for B&W. She is in fact mostly white, so I think this medium helps capture her various contours better.
You can find more black and white at the original Lens-Artist challenge, guest hosted this week by Anne at Slow Shutter Speed.
