Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Black and White

It’s really been a joy to participate in the Lens-Artists Photo Challenges over time. I have “met” so many interesting bloggers and “traveled” to so many fascinating places. And I’ve learned something about technique and artistry along the way. This week, the guest host is Anne Sandler. Her header image took my breath away, and then she totally schooled me on processing black and white photographs! Visit her post HERE.

I am less than a novice when it comes to processing. I use the very rudimentary tools that came with my camera. I’ve never even used Photoshop. The texture and tone and clarity that Anne achieves is truly stunning. What I know about Black and White is that I like it for portraits and for “art”. It’s not much, but it’s a start.

  1. Priscilla, thanks for taking on this challenge! Your black and white portraits are simply beautiful. And on your final picture, (I think it’s an elevated train track?) the lines and textures are accented in the absence of color. Well done!

  2. I’m in the same place as you, as I only have a couple free editing apps and usually, unless playing around, do very little to edit. I really like the photos of your son and his wife.

  3. I ha e tried photoshop a few times and have two people that offer me free lessons whenever I want / and I still cannot get into it! So
    Basic editing is for me too!
    And your photos here are wonderful – filled with that charm from the couple and the closing photo with the string lines seemed to be like “love anchored in”
