Back in May 2020, I wrote a post about how I was a fan of Monochrome Photography, and all I can say nearly 18 months later that passion for monochrome photography is still as strong today as it was back then. In fact, I would say it has even intensified since running the Mid-Week Monochrome Photography Challenge on this blog.

I’m finding I am even more drawn to monochrome to the point where I am beginning to try every image in monochrome and if it works, great I will post the monochrome image.

Naturally sometimes an image doesn’t bode well in plain black and white. But one thing I’ve learnt over the years… before the implementation of software with sky replacement… is that if you have a dismal bland sky, then the monochrome route is the one you might like to try.

To enhance our monochrome images, I use a lot of radiant filters and quite a bit of dodging and burning. In fact, to be honest, him indoors, prefers monochrome images to coloured images. So we are both onto a winner ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ as we both agree on that one ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Have you found yourself, drawn to monochrome photography? Let us know your views and how you like to experiment with your images!

  1. From all your monochrome images, it is easy to see your passion for the style. I’m also trying out B&W with an assortment of images (I’ve tried a lensball one for your MWM which I think came out quite well). Thanks, for playing along ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    1. The more I am playing with monochrome, the more I am becoming enthralled with it… I don’t know why I like it so much but monochrome photography just attracts me to it so much. xx Thanks for joining in… love the lens ball image. xx

      1. I think it can bring drama to a shot which, although good, might just be missing something ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  2. I love the architecture of this home, so beautiful. While I have nowhere near your processing skills, I will try changing a bad photo in grayscale or black and white which occasionally renders it usable. I love your work!

    1. Thank you very much .. also I find it you have noise in your image black and white send to deal with the noise problem.

      1. Your welcome. I find the software that you use too complicated for me, hard to figure out!
