Monochrome Photography Challenge (Sisterhood)

Monochrome Photography Challenge (Sisterhood)
Tag :

If you follow me on Google Plus or Facebook you may have seen that I accepted a photo challenge. For five days I was to post one black & white picture and then challenge another photographer to do the same. You probably have been around for a while so you already know that I love monochrome photography. Therefore, rather than practicing the art of black & white photos, the challenge for me was, was posting a picture each and every day.

But I have done it. And since we just got back from our yearly Outer Banks vacation, I decided to stick with a beach theme throughout the challenge. Maybe not typically something you associate with black & white pictures, but I love it. Today is my fifth day and I am finishing this challenge with showing you all five photos here on my website.

Day 1 ~ Broken on the Beach ~

beach, b&w, shell, sand

Day 2 ~ waves ~

wave, surf, b&w

Day 3 ~ surf action ~

surfer, b&w, wave

Day 4 ~ sand ~

 Day 5 ~ ice | glass | water ~

surf, wave, splash, b&w

And not only is this the final image for the 5-day-challenge, but also my final post in our Sisterhood Blog Circle. Since the publishing day always collides with my WW post I have decided that I need to let go of one or the other. And since I love my Instagram Wordless Wednesday even more, it has to be the Sisterhood. Many thanks to Isabelle Lafrance for having me as a sister. But now on to fellow photographer based in Ireland, Kay Maguire Photography.

    oh that sand picture is awesome! I love the sparkles. I may have to challenge myself to do a week of B&W just to see how the world looks without color for a week.

    These are fantastic in BW. Allows the details and textures to really take center stage.

    Hi Claudia,
    I can only do one meme at a time, too. I like b&w pix. I can see lots of texture when not distracted by color. 🙂 m & jb

    I loved having you on board Claudia! Will miss you in our circle! I love the BW photos and beach theme xox

    • Claudia Willison

      It really is a tough decision, Isabelle, which is why I have not commented on the facebook post yet. I will continue to blog and would in the circle, but Wednesdays just does not work for me 🙁

    I have enjoyed watching this unfold. I think day 2 is my fave. Because its almost a yin/yang thing. Bright wave on the left, dark wave on the right. Pretty cool.

    I love the different perspective and tone that is achieved when you use the B&W on a beach shot. We’ve all seen gorgeous blue sky and surf pics – that are of course great; but this just helps you see it in a new way. It’s almost calmer – whereas the coloured ones are very vibrant and energetic. These are sooo soothing.
    Had fun with the challenge even though I was under the weather. but kinda fit the mood, right?

      I am really glad you are seeing this and enjoying the b&w challenge, I love seeing your pictures and your creativity unfold in pictures, Leslie. Yes, b&w is somewhat unusual for a beach scene, but I like that other things pop out at you when you take away the colors.

    I never even really think of black and white photography on a beach, so it’s very cool to see. It shows details I don’t think I usually notice!
