This week the challenge is “Black & White, But in Color”
This week, we’re taking images of black and white objects while keeping the color settings on your camera – or use color film to take images of black and white objects. Shades of grey between the black and white are ok, but each image has to have only both black and white in them – no other colors.
Keep your camera settings on color. The point of this exercise is not only to learn about exposure control – aiming for getting the black blacks and white whites – but also to see the colors within the black and the white. This is an exercise in composition, as oftentimes it is difficult to find black and white objects that don’t have other colors in them.
Read through the Learning To See description to make sure you get why and how you are doing the challenge. Make sure that the composition of your images are 100% about the challenge.
Always experiment with variations on the weekly theme within the subjects of the challenge – composition, contrast, shape, texture, colors, light, shadow, perspective, framing …
