| March Meeting
The group looked at what makes a good black and white picture. There are plenty of articles that describe the factors making a good monochrome picture. The main factors were discussed... shape, form, pattern, texture, contrast (high and low), high key or low key.
The effects of fillters on black and white pictures was demonstrated.
This was taken with colour correction (by setting white balance for the lighting conditions). The picture was repeated setting the camera to black and white and selecting a colour filter with the following effects...
Black and white - no filter red filter green filter yellow filter
Take 2 monochrome pictures (any subject) using one colour filter, repeat the picture with no filter (for comparison). This may be in camera or an external filter. Briing both unedited images to the next project group.
|February Homework results
Take a portrait picture with a custom white balance set to make the picture look moody. Bring unedited files to next meeting.
All are straight from camera with no editing...
