Weekly Photography Challenge – Black and White Techniques

This week over at dPS it’s all about black and white photography. They are featuring a series of tips and articles around that topic. Some of the topics are shown below and more will be added daily over the next few days.
  • 5 Simple Ways to Create Expressive Photos in Black and White 
  • Tips for Black and White Wildlife Photography
  • 7 Tips for Black and White Portrait Photography
  • 28 Images with Strong Black and White Compositions
Once you have read the tips you can try out different black and white techniques and then enter your own images into their weekly photography challenge.  Why not try any or all of the following:
  • Shoot in b/w mode
  • High contrast lighting
  • Convert to b/w in Lightroom
  • Convert to b/w using Photoshop
  • Try out a black and white plugin
  • Try out some sepia tone or split toning
  • Do a b/w portrait, landscape, macro, night shots, street photography, or flowers
  • Try a b/w silhouette

I have submitted the image below, so if you want to improve your black and white techniques, and perhaps submit one of your own images, click to get over to dPS.
