Black and White Photo Challenge

October 31, 2014  •  48 Comments

It's now been nearly a year since my last post! I really must try harder.

I've been nominated by my friend Danielle Connor (http://danielleconnorphotography.zenfolio.com/) to do the Black and White Photo Challenge and I've decided to follow her idea to complete the challenge in blog format. The original idea is that you post five images over five consecutive days nominating a friend/photographer with each image. Mine however, will all be in one post.

 Here are my five images.

 

CygnetCygnet

I photographed this Cygnet at sunset, shooting towards the low light so that it lit up the downy feathers. Underexposing the image caused the feathers to outline the bird against the dark water behind.

I'm generally not usually much of a plant photographer, but I quite liked this shot.  Shooting with a dark background on this dead dandelion gave a nice shadowy look to the image.

I used a head-torch as a form of back-lighting on this Early Thorn moth.  Again, I under-exposed, to cause the moth to be silhouetted against the light.

This young Heron was sitting in bright light, which meant I could get a dark background making the bird stand out.


 

I generally don't stray from nature photography, so I was out of my comfort zone with this shot.  It was taken from the bottom of Tower 42 in London - taking the image in portrait showed off its height.

 

So that's my five entries. I'd like to thank Danielle for the nomination, and nominate Caleb Knight ( https://www.facebook.com/CalebKnightWildlifePhotos) to also complete this challenge!

 Thanks for reading
