Black and White Photography Challenge: Week 7

20 May

A few weeks ago I was scoping out a location for a portrait photography shoot in Portland and was taking photographs along the way to help more create a map of where I would be able to place people that would have a nice back drop.

Of course I ended up finding a patch of Butter Cups (anyone else think of the Princess Bride everyone you see Butter Cups) to photograph. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t often turn my flower photographs black and white because a lot off what I love about flowers is the color they have, but since I am trying to do more black and white I decided to just try it out. I used my Samsung phone to photograph this time and used the app Snapseed to edit it.

This park, Gabriel Park, in Portland was lovely and has lots of opportunity for great photographs as well as tennis, baseball, skate boarding, and a short hike. I had no idea Portland had this park, but it is really quite lovely. Of course Portland is wonderful for all of the rally great packets of wilderness and parks that it has.

Check out my week 6 black and white photography challenge while you are here and feel free to join along and post a black and white photograph a week for 8 weeks. I only have one more week to go, but I would enjoy seeing what others post. ๐Ÿ™‚

Black and White Photography Challenge: Week 2

These succulents are spreading rapidly in the rocky area outside my house. I brought one little tiny one up from my mom’s garden a few years ago. They had planted themselves in her yard so I figured they should do okay in mine.

I was correct. They are a great addition to the garden, turning that area from rocks for practicality to a little show case of succulents.

I think I have also photographed these succulents every year, but I don’t think I have ever posted them in black and white before.

This year I used my phone to photograph these little plants and then used a photography editing app on my phone to make them black and white and do any adjustments to them so they would be ready for week 2 of 8 of this mini photography challenge.

I hope you will join me in the challenge, and post a link back here so I know you are and can visit your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚
