POINT & CLICK WITH ANNA Z : BLACK AND WHITE PICTURES

.

Happy Thursday guys! Today I'm sharing some black & white pictures. I took the featured photo on a cloudy day this past spring when the cherry trees were all in bloom.

Here are some tips when taking B&W photos.
  • Shoot in color. You have more control over your end results if you have the color data to work with. 
  • Low ISO. Shoot with a low film speed! You want as little grain as possible. 
  • Gloomy days are a great days to shoot B&W photos. Low contrast make it easier to see detail. 
  • Composition is important since you don't have color to lead the eye in to and around the shot. This means you need to train yourself to look at shapes, tones and textures in your frame as points of interest. Pay attention to shadows and highlights which will become a feature of your shot. 
Thanks for having me Sandi! Now go out and shoot some pictures!
