Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge: #23 Black and White: The Basics

I am so honoured that Cee picked one of my photos entered into Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge #22 to receive a Gold Award… thank you Cee for picking my photo xx  It is one of my favourites too xx


This Compose Yourself Photo Challenge (CCY) Theme is #23 Black and White:  The Basics and this challenge will be open through July 28, 2016.

For your assignment I would like to see at least 4-6 photos showing the compositional rules listed in the essay. Please tell us what rules you used in your photos.

One of my favourite forms of photography is black and white…  I like the contrast and grey tones of black and white photography.  For this assignment which have to be based on Contrast and Texture… I am digging into my archives… and have selected these photographs.

Chiddingstone Castle Interior Photography

What I love about this photograph are the different textures in the furniture and the curtains and you can even see the texture of the wood floor.

Under the Wharf
St Leonard’s Pier

This is another favourite of mine.. you can see the texture of the wood and the rocks of this old pier at St Leonards near Hastings in East Sussex

Flowers of Belmont -IMG_2995
Taken by Ashley Ryan

Even though the above photograph is sepia based I have chosen it purely because of the contrast of the bright petals and the dark stems of the each delicate flower.

Little Egret

And I love the photograph of this Little Egret and how soft the contrast is between the water and the Little Egret.
