This week's prompt for Sally Russick's Focusing on Life series had me learning another feature of my camera. I haven't really messed with the features since the first week when I tried out the self timer, so I was grateful for this prompt Sally. We were to set our camera on the Monochromatic setting and click away.
I was a bit taken aback with this. Though I am a great admirer of black and white photos, I do like me lots of bright color and try to surround myself with it. Pushing that aside, I found myself just snapping pictures randomly around the house.
With an overcast day outside and wet floors inside (I had just finished mopping) I stuck to the craft room for the rest of my attempts.
What is it about black and white that makes photos more professional looking? I'm sure to play with this setting again and again. Thanks for the push in this direction Sally!
