Black and White Photo Challenge

This week I am taking on Strawberry Singh’s black and white portrait challenge.  I remember when I was young I preferred photos in colour and thought black and white photos were boring.

These days now that I am a bit older and wiser, I have grown to like black and white photos again.  I now refer to them as classic and they certainly are.  I love looking through photos of famous actors, actresses and musicians in black and white.  They look so elegant and look as if they tell a story.

For this photo challenge, I decided to dress in black and white as well.  The first set of photos I took for this challenge were with my photo studio, however I didn’t like them, so I re-took the raw images, this time in the garden of my home in SL and I am quite pleased with how they turned out.  I then edited my photos using Pic Monkey and voila.

The photo below is the colour version, so you can compare the two.  I equally like both photos.  Pic Monkey also has a sepia image setting so you can take your photos back even further in time in brown and cream and I have to say I love using the sepia setting for some of my vintage photos.  You will also noticed that I used the sepia effect in the photo I posted in my book meme blog post.

One thing I would like to learn is how to take photos and get a shadow effect.  I don’t know if Strawberry has posted a blog on shadows in SL, but for me to achieve something like that would be awesome.

In the meantime, for those of you who would like to try this challenge for yourself, you can find it by clicking on this link  http://strawberrysingh.com/2014/02/03/black-white-portrait-challenge/
