Leanne Cole does a weekly Monochrome Madness post consisting of all the B&W photos she receives during each week. It’s not a contest, but a place for photographers to show their B&W work; anyone can submit photos.
I did not submit anything this week, but I urge readers to visit this week’s contributions. As usual, some outstanding photos spanning all sorts of subjects.
Flowers often draw my interest when looking for color photos that might convert well to B&W. Here, I wanted to expand on my choices for the photos I had prepared for submission to MM.
Take, for instance, this flower . . .
This is what it looks like in one of the conversions into B&W.
It’s OK . . . but then I had the idea of trying to process it as a negative:
I like this effect, and it worked for nearly all the flowers I tried.
This next one presents itself, in my opinion, as well in B&W as it does in color. The negative is also interesting.
This next flower presents itself well in B&W.
I especially like the above even though I can’t exactly say why.
Well, enough for now. Next week, more orphaned Monochrome Madness wannabes.
Monochrome Madness is open to all. As mentioned, it is not a contest; it’s a showcase for people’s adventures in B&W photography. Professional or amateur, all are welcomed. If you have a favorite B&W photo or even a not-so-favorite, consider contributing; you will not be judged, and the photo might provide enjoyment for a pair of eyes or two.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
