Competition Meeting

Competition Meeting

Theme: Black and White

Time Limit: Image must have been taken after June 21, 2021.


Shapes, Line, Texture and Color are the main elements in a photo with impact. When Color is removed one or more of the other elements will need to be strong to hold the viewer’s attention. So, by creating an impactful B&W you’ll improve your abilities to emphasize these other elements of a photograph, and to identify ways to grab attention and create mood without color. And perhaps you’ll learn how different B&W conversion methods can affect tonal relationships.

For this month’s challenge, choose your own subject and composition emphasizing shapes, lines and/or textures to create up to two Powerful Black and White images. 

Remember: NO COLOR –  NO Selective Color, such as a red colored rose in a BW background;  NO Monochromatic tints such as sepia;  NO Duotones, or other forms of Color grading 


Judge for this theme will be Geff Bourke.
