Mini#32 Monochrome, 2016
Created by mrsawyer
Hosted by Lo
      It has been 3 years since we last explored this photographic staple, so again, let's try to see the world in black and white (toned monochromes are welcome too). If your viewfinder allows you to frame a scene in monochrome, try it. If not, use your mind's eye. Colors can take attention away from the visual building blocks of a great photo; texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting. A photographer shooting in monochrome should learn how to use all these elements to create a memorable image. Understand that not all subjects are suitable for monochrome, so experiment!
