Black and white photography

Transcript: This is a photoset that I created at pride last year. When I saw the stairs I knew I wanted to do something with all my friends on them. My brother is the one taking the photographs, and I set up the shots. In the first one We were all sitting in different spots pretending to not know each other. In the secound one all the girls are pointing at Anthony tying his shoes, and the last one we all ran over to him and hugged him for a group photo. If I were to do this again I would like to have a tripod to keep the photos all in the same position. My brother shifted between each photo. This is a photograph I took of Anthony's shadow while he held a balloon on his 16th birthday. I named it "the lonely boy" because something about it feels quite melancholy and isolated. I think this theme is enhanced by the black and white, which eliminated the yellow balloon and road line. I increased the contrast but the shadow still retained a bit of the texture of the road, which gives this piece more depth than just a silhouette piece. Courtney Black and white photography Descriptions Fruit Angles The interesting thing about the strawberries is they still retain their familiar texture, when I look at them I can't but feel something is off. I decided to convert this photo to not only test out the look of the strawberries, but also because I thought the granite surface would give it some attractive depth. I've never considered converting fruit photographs to black and white because one of the huge appeals to me is their vibrant colours. I decided to give it a try and found the results very interesting. I thought the photograph of the apples (Left) looked interesting when I changed it to black and white. I made the reds very dark and increased the contrast and suddenly the outside of the apple looked black and the inside looks dirty almost rotten. Black and White Emotions I took the photo (left) standing above Courtney as she laid on the ground. I love this shot because it's a different perspective and also her hair looks awesome. By converting this photograph to black and white the horrible yellow light the tinted this piece is gone, no longer a distraction. If I were to do it again knowing I would convert it to black and white I would get her to wear a darker shirt, to contrast with her face more. It may be spring but the leaves haven't yet returned to all of the trees. I found this cluster of bare branches and I thought they looked sharp and sinister. Converting it to black and white made all the bright greens in the background into shades of grey, making this look like a winter scene. The use of a smaller f-stop on the macro setting blurred the background leaving the foreground branches in focus. Colour Splash Pride

Transcript: Black and white Photography By:Matthew Gagliardo What is black and white photography What is Black and white Photography Black and white Photography is the art of using different tones of gray ranging from white to dark, to create compelling images. Examples Examples Reasons to use Black and White Reasons to use Black and white Black and white can also bring out emotion and make a photo that is shot today look like it was shot 50 years ago. You can also play with the lighting and shadows of the image and still have the same effect as before. Black and white photography removes any distraction of color and helps the viewer focus on other aspects of the photo, such as the subject, the textures, shapes and patterns, and the composition. So, you can use all the same composition techniques Emotion Emotion Pattern Patterns Compositions Techniques Composition Techniques How to shoot Black and white photos How to shoot black and white pictures Look for the setting on your camera that allows you to view and shoot in black and white.A good photo typically has some pattern to it. Something that makes the viewers’ eyes follow the pattern and look for more patterns. Patterns can be rocks on the ground, blades of grass, cars going from left to right, and any other repeating object, texture, or design. Best time to take them Best time to take black and white photos Winter is a great time to take black and white images. With winter photography, particularly on an overcast day, there might not seem to be much difference from your original, color image. Gray skies, barren trees, and white snow covering the ground – you’re already 90% of the way to having a black and white photo! Street photography involves capturing the human condition in public places. Naturally, the “human condition” can be defined in a variety of ways, but black and white images seem to capture the vibe of the streets and the people that occupy it Examples Editing your Photos Editing your photos Whether you shoot in black and white, or convert to black and white afterward, there are a few things you can do to make your black and white images even better using your favorite photo editing software.By increasing the contrast and reducing the brightness, you further enhance the differences in an image’s light and dark tones.You can also reduce the contrast and fade the shadows, providing an underexposed look, or how about adding some grain for a more authentic film look? But you can’t just slap a Noir filter on there.

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
