I set my camera on the “Monochrome” setting and shot a few things round the house. I was surprised that when I got them into LightRoom, the color information was still all there. Hmm… Clicked Grayscale, moved a few sliders back and forth.

I was issued another challenge yesterday – to pick a photographer and create an image as an homage.
I had this photo by Tina Modotti in mind when I made mine:
Oh dear. Now that I see them side by side I see mine has a long way to capture the essence of what I wanted… Always something to learn!
I didn’t do so well with the 365 day challenge. It was too long. I made to 150-something. Which is remarkable. For me.
Smaller challenges work better, though sometimes I’m resistant. For example, I was tapped by a fellow photographer to post 3 black and white pictures – one a day – tapping another photographer to play along each day. I ignored it. Then a second photographer asked me. Then a third. I finally played along, though not totally following the rules.
Here are the photos I posted:
I don’t really know what I’m doing in converting color photos to black and white. I hope to be learning some techniques this spring in a photo class I’ll be taking!
