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 😀 😀 😀 as we both agree on that one 😀 😀 😀
Have you found yourself, drawn to monochrome photography? Let us know your views and how you like to experiment with your images!
