Black and white photography is something that may appeal to you, or you may have a strong aversion. It seems to be the case that photographers are opinionated about monotone photos. Whatever the case may be, we’ve constructed this little black and white photo challenge to encourage you to try this form of photography.
The Black & White Photo Challenge
This is a five week challenge you can take upon yourself. You will have a week for each category. Remember to leave some time to edit your photos and create your black and white image!
To share your photo with the Nomad Photography Network, use the hashtag #nomadphotographynetwork on Instagram with your photo. We look at every photo, as do many members of our community. You may even get your photo featured on our page!
- Portrait – Take a portrait of another living being in black and white. It may be a human or an animal. Remember to be aware of the light, and the contrast of the photo when taking it!
- Nature – It may be a macro shot, or a larger landscape. Take a photo of the natural world and convert it to black and white!
- Melancholy – Black & white photos can lend themselve well to sad or melancholy scenes. Try to take a photo this third week and give it some moodiness
- Joy – Now, flip the script and take a photo that brings joy. Monochromatic photos don’t need to be sad. See if you can portray joy or happiness without color.
- Street – Finally, take a street shot. It may be people, architecture, or something you see in your town. Think about the black and white scheme when taking your photo, and what will lend itself well.
Remember to tag #nomadphotographynetwork in your photos so we can see them!
