Silhouette (Bethany)

Sorry a little late on this topic.
We were in Gettysburg this past week where I enjoyed experimenting with this topic. So much fun!! Only wish the sky had been prettier.

Black and White (Lisa M.)

I heart black and white! Graffiti, I heart you too.
Camera : 20D
Lens: 50mm 1.8
ISO: 200
reduced saturation till all color is removed
went into adjustment and made the diagonal line a slight S. Making the blacks blacker and the whites whiter.

New Topic

So, no one has posted a new topic for the month. How does everyone feel about Black and White? It's something that I've wanted to try...

Studio Silhouettes (by S)

This is my first ever post! I had built a little photo studio in my house right before joining this group, so I used the silhouette assignment as a chance to play around in the studio... literally. At one point, my cat decided to join in.

I really like how the 2D nature of a silhouette lets you compress depth into strange shapes. The gradients here are from the way the light was falling off, which I just color balanced towards blue.

I had a lot of fun, but there are still things left that I want to try!
