Black and white tips


On Art - taking that shot


There's a lot of tips on black and white photography. And I'd like to share some here with you.
According tobest-family-photography-tips.com, the elegance and timelessness of black and white photography ensures its continual popularity. They said that more people are becoming interested in black and white photography for many reasons...

- black and white photography is seen less frequently; hence it is
rare - and for that reason alone it is of interest
- when used "properly," black and white accentuates the depth of the photograph
- black and white heightens emotional content
- black and white photography has a tendency to make photos look more like works of art
- produces a clean, crisp look
- transforms a dingy or overcast look into a striking photo evoking emotion

Since your current or next digital camera may have a black and white setting on it, let's find out how we can make the most of it by learning some black and white photography tips.

Tip no 1 : Transform Dull or Drab scenes into [potential]Works of Art
On a particularly overcast and dreary day, you can take shots in black and white.
When in doubt, take the shot!...it might turn out fabulous.

Tip no 2 : Emotional Scenes
Very powerful, touching photographs that convey strong emotion often look better in black and white than in color.

Tip no 3 : Relationship Portraits
Probably the most popular use of black and white photography is with a single subject.
One category of subjects that should always be considered is babies and children.

Tip no 4 : Dramatic Cityscapes or Architecture
If a photograph does not have an entire spectrum of different colors, consider viewing it as a black and white photograph.Cityscapes often lack a multitude of colors.

Tip no 5 : Everyday Magic!
A 'No-Big-Deal photo' could be a great one if you do some cropping. By cropping a No-Big-Deal photo, you can create the subject of interest that you want.Cropping is a basic tool in any photo-editing software, and most software packages that come with digital cameras.The magical thing about cropping, is that it's possible to create many unique images from a single source image file. That's magic!

[ Point-To-Remember: Take your camera with you wherever you go because you never know what photo opportunities will exist. ]

OH Hyds !!! That would be wonderful!
Actually you've read this before, I posted in KOB.

Btw,look at the first pic, Yong Joon already had that 'out of this world' camera since then ! am I right?

Dear Myoce,
That photo looked like an earlier one , isn't it? I think the Hasselblad is his new addition. The lens he used wasn't a Hasselblad either. Take a look at this site. The black tip is only a lens shade I assumed.

judging from the look of the lens it's a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
hahahahaha!!! Did you look at the price?? It's £1,149.99 UK price.. That's a month's wage to some!
myoce said…
You are right !

And the camera looks like one of the EOS series From Canon..

When you commented, I actually was using a magnifying glass to see the brand name in the pic...but it was too small !!
myoce said…
Yep Hyds...the Zoom Lense looks like the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM or it could be the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM they look almost the same.
Do you think the camera is a Canon EOS?

He he BYJ can more than well afford it! [the Hasselblad too he he he] I really admire him on his choice!
Hyds said…
Could be since I read from some sites he used Canon. It's ok Myoce, it's acceptable to only settle for the best. You get what you paid for. ;-)
myoce said…
Yep I agree 100 % >____<

Some say he also used Leica...
