January Theme:

Hope everyone had a wonderful Xmas and New Year.  

New year brings new themes and to start off January we will be doing Black and White as the theme for the month.  

B&W can be challenging as we are generally used to shooting in colour and of course we see the world in colour.  Stripping colour out of a photograph means we have to get back to the essentials of line, form and shape.  We see contrasts because of changes in luminosity and changes in luminosity allows for depth in our photos.  

Most cameras now have settings that allow us to view a scene in B&W on our screen and viewfinder.  Use this to help you see in B&W. 
There is a lot of information online about B&W photography.  Here is one site that while it is long it is comprehensive, give it a look.
