you capture::black&white

This week's challenge for You Capture is Black & White. Simple enough, right? I love black and white photos of people and landscapes. However, when I edit my own pictures to be black and white I'm never too thrilled. I tend to like vibrant color and crisp photos. I guess since I'm trying to learn how to use my camera really well it seems to defeat the purpose of capturing the perfect shot. Then I chose these photos and I really like them.


I do. The eyelashes, the frizzy hair, the tiny earrings, all stand out because my eyes are not distracted by the vibrant colors of such a sunny day.



Then in this last picture, I was practicing with macro and depth of field and I captured a new found skill of stick bending.



It takes a gentle hand and lots of patience to break a stick without actually breaking it all the way through. I love the result in black and white. To see more captures go visit I Should Be Folding Laundry. Happy Thursday. xo ANG

BEAUTIFUL pictures of your girls! I'd say those were 'framers'! The stick picture is pretty darn cool too.

Those are great! I too find I have a hard time changing over to black and white :D But it does really change the feel of the photo.
