2019 Week 11 B&W Portrait

Your Challenge if you choose to accept it is to produce a B&W Portrait

The example below is from my portfolio.

Definition of Portrait

Portrait is a photograph of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.

How you achieve a B&W Portrait

Provided your camera, phone or whatever you use to take your images allows B&W in your device of choice, then feel free to shoot B&W on location. If you like post production or fancy having a dabble then go for it. Post processing is just as important as capturing the image, and shouldn’t be looked down upon as a lesser art form.

Below are two links, Trevor Carpenters B&W Challenge from 2009 and Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero explained how to utilise coloured filters for B&W.

Don’t forget the colour filters explained previously by Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero

As always remember to have fun, be creative and out of the box interpretations are encouraged

The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:

  • Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo:  #2019photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2019 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
  • Post your photo during the week of Sunday, March 10 and Saturday, March 16.
  • Please remember to comment on at least FIVE photo submissions this week by answering the question “why?” in your comments. In other words, “why do I like (or not like) this photo? or “why did this photo catch my eye?”
