Today I have two examples of flora photography and one shot of a pond that seems to have unfathomable depths. Each of the two flowers have been obviously treated differently: one in in colour, the other in monochrome. This gives two completely different visions of the plants with each one equally valid. EDGED IN PURPLE … Continue reading Flowers and a reflection
Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive. – Elliot Irwitt As can be seen by regular visitors to my blog, 99% of my images are monochrome. When I am taking photographs, I tend to see most things in a black and white way. I have no problem in processing the images most of … Continue reading Working in monochrome

For the next couple of posts or so, I will be showing photographs taken in the centre of Birmingham. There is some fantastic modern architecture in the city as well as atmospheric older buildings that come from the city's past. Let's not forget that it is said that Birmingham has more canals than Venice. There … Continue reading Architecture in monochrome

The first by Guy Tal looks at the ability that some photographers have in being able to see in black and white when looking for and planning their shots. Tal says that in black and … Continue reading Monochrome Mutterings

This is because the titles didn't give any indication of what was in the post and didn't give a reader a mental link to the photographs featured. I hope that this new will work better in … Continue reading Kingdom of Madness
Today’s images are again from the Weston-Super-Mare shoot. Despite the weather (or should I say because of it), it was such a great day for photography. The light was that really translucent type that seemed to just emanate from everywhere. These next three images are again in the 1:1 or square format that I like … Continue reading Photographs #18
There will probably be a few 'Out and Abouts' in Berkswell this year, as I am taking part if a project by the viewfinder.club called 'The Walk'. The challenge is to do the same shortish walk - two miles or so - many times a year, recording the changes that you see, and trying to … Continue reading Out and About: Berkswell
Sometimes you just have bite the bullet and go for something even if you think that you have no chance in succeeding. It’s a moral fibre building exercise right? I have been subscribed to the excellent Black + White Photography magazine for the last three years. It’s a superb showcase of monochrome photography in all … Continue reading First Competition Success
