The photo challenge for the next two weeks is Black and White Photography. This type of photography is alive and well in the era of colour photography. It allows you to focus your attention on the essence of light without the distraction of colour. It makes you think in terms of tonal values of light and dark. Alex Kilbee has two lectures on this subject. One that highlight a number of famous Black and White photographers and one on the B&W Zone system. It is not just about taking great pictures without colour but also about post processing these images in the digital darkroom, by bringing out detail through selective brightening and darkening. Some areas in your image can be emphasized for a stronger emotional impact.
