Photography 101- Architecture

Photo 101 today shares:

“As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget black and white, or monochrome, which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways.

Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors.”

To show how dynamic different kinds of photography can be I uploaded photos in both color and black and white.  I love black and white images.  They seem to be moodier and more expressive.  I changed the black and white images using Picmonkey.com and did add the black edges.

This was a great experiment and I will use this technique more often now that I know how expressive it is.

Thanks for stopping by today.  By the way, the bird bath was frozen over in Pensacola this morning.  29 degrees F. is a wee bit TOO COLD for Florida!

      1. Now that is cold by Florida standards. Here in the UK it’s a barmy 52 and has been for the last week with on signs of a let up. Most of the shops are already selling winter coats at half price because it hasn’t been cold enough and they have far too much stock left. Grab yourself a bargain I say, Colleen 🙂 Before we know it they will have shorts and swimwear back in the shops.
