Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 7

It's all about the image

Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 7

17th May 2014

This month’s prompt is; Black and White.

Not to be confused with monochrome which means ‘one colour’. I am looking for purely black and white images. No Sepia, no Cyanotype, no Split Tones, no Infrared etc just plain ole Black and White.

However, in order to add interest I am going to suggest that it would be fun if we all posted the original colour version of the image alongside the Black and White so we can see how the two compare. It can be an image you have used previously that you have now decided to change to black and white or something completely new. Black and white is an editing option that can certainly bring an image to life but sometimes using it can result in you losing something in the image too. Hence my suggestion that posting both the colour version and the black and white. Also, I find that people often see something in my images, or like them for different reasons than I do and so hopefully this prompt will encourage discussion and potentially be a learning opportunity for us all.

The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.

As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.
