Catching up on the critiques while back from vacation. Here goes nothing! There were a slew of Black & White submissions to go through, including some new contenders to the challenge.
Welcome to the challenge, Vanessa and Chris! Looking forward to seeing you submit some cool shots. You're off to a good start so far this week.
For this challenge shooters were asked to submit Black & White shots, either new ones taken or old colour shots converted to B&W.
It's amazing how much the absence of colour can affect the overall image. Most of the time I find that by removing colour you start to notice other things like textures, finer details and lighting a lot more.
Take a look through the video critiques for each person's submissions to see what my thoughts were and pick up a few tips about seeing the world strictly black/white.
