Photo Assignment: Black and White

Welcome to your newest photo challenge! In our efforts to help photographers grow and improve, our photography assignments are designed to test and push your creative bounds to the limit. These photo assignments are intended to encourage our members to see the world in different ways, try new camera techniques, and photograph subject which you may normally shy away from.

We recently blogged about the release of The Magic of Black and White – Part II ebook by Andrew S. Gibson, who teaches his readers about both the photography and processing techniques for creating stunning black and white images. We’d like to keep that theme going, by challenging you with this photo assignment:

Assignment #37 theme: Black and White
Timeframe: June 3rd to June 16th, 2010
The challenge is to take a BRAND NEW photo in the theme of “Black and White.”
Entries are to be submitted here: Assignment 37: Black and White (PhotographyBB Forums)

Since we are all working in the new digital era of photography, post processing is naturally a large part of the game. For this reason, we will be selecting our top choices based on the overall composition of the photo, as well as your black and white processing technique. Also, we will include submissions that are toned or tinted (ie. Sepia, etc…).

Important: With all of our photo assignments, the object (besides having fun) is to learn something new, even if that means learning how to see the world around you in a different way. Therefore, we only accept entries for new photos which have been taken during the assignment time frame (see above). You may submit up to 3 entries in total, and the top 3 photos will be selected and published (with image acknowledgments) in an upcoming issue of the PhotographyBB Online Magazine.

Everyone is welcome to participate. We have a supportive and friendly community of photographers and beginners, and this is a great way to get to know one another. Have fun, and happy photographing!
