This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range.
I’m still not sure if this photo fits this week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge theme of monochromatic. I decided to use my magnolia photo and played around with some editing apps. I ended up with this picture and I like it! I think the use of the black and white with the pop of colour, highlights the true beauty of the magnolia flower.
The inclusion of a pop of color in an otherwise monochromatic palette can also result in a dramatic image…. In a monochromatic image, a distinct point of focus, or focal point, is also a necessity.
I enjoyed this challenge and learnt a lot about monochromatic photos, especially as I always thought they were just black and white (how naive!), but the examples used in Jen’s post show a different and very interesting side to monochromatic photos.
This has been one of the best challenges I’ve done in ages as it really got me thinking and looking at things differently and then experimenting. I still don’t know if I got it right though!!
Please let me know what your thoughts are.
Have a great weekend everyone!
