The B&W Photography Project | Week #14

October 12, 2014

Thank you so much for joining in with the Black and White Photography Project and sharing the monochrome love.

Having attended a macro photography course yesterday, I thought I’d share a few of the photos. It seems quite alien converting floral loveliness to black and white but I like the emphasis on shape. It was raining when the above photograph was taken so it was a case of balance the brolly on the shoulder and using the thigh tripod. I’m sure I’m not alone in doing that?!

I couldn’t tell you what this is but the texture caught my eye. It looks quite intriguing in monochrome.

    I think you always manage to give justice to every lovely flowers when you turn them into black and white.. I mean, they still look so damn pretty. :>

    Stunning photos – the textures and shapes stand out so well in black and white. Think the middle photo is my favourite – love the detail 🙂

    Absolutely stunning photographs. I love the raindrops on the first image, and the detail in the second picture is incredible. Jess

    Very cool. Black and and white makes flowers look both eerie and intriguing! X

    I really do think flowers work well in black and white. I especially like the droplets on the first one 🙂

    I normally don’t like flowers in B&W, but these are all lovely shots. You’re right about the monochrome bringing out the texture and shape. The third one is my favourite – I love how vivid the little strands of white fluff are against the grey background.

  • Marylin October 12, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    These are fantastic! I love the strange one at the bottom. 🙂 My post will be up tomorrow! x

  • Grace October 12, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    Yes I agree, in black and white you really do focus more on the shapes and texture. Amazing.
