As I mentioned on Sunday morning, there were two real motivators behind Black and White Wednesdays. The first was to give me something to work towards this winter with my photography and make me step out of my comfort zone a little….kind of pushing myself a bit. The second motivator was to fill an entire wall/hallway in our home with black and white photos of our family.
I am almost embarrased to say……because you all know how many pictures I take, but I only have 6 photos hanging on that wall……ONLY SIX!!! And can I add that 3 of them were taken at a portrait studio before I really got into photography. Yeah…. that tells you a lot…… I am not on the ball with my photo printing, because surely, I should have more than 6 hanging up there.
So, when I thought about this weekly challenge; to take and process at least one photo in black and white, I started to think about what it was that I wanted to photograph……
Well, most definitely I want photos of the kids……but I don’t want all posed, portrait style photos. I want some everyday life photos…..candids….things that will make memories. Things that they will look at years from now and say, remember when…..
I also don’t want every shot to be a photo of a person. I would like to hang some images of things that symbolize our life, our family and our interests. I want to include places we travel and things we see on a daily basis.
The wheels are turning in my head……. I have a lot of ideas spinning around up there, I just hope I can execute them……so that I can share them with you each week!
Without further ado…. Here is the first B&W that will be heading to the wall.
Her expression is what drew me in and her cute little tootsies dangling in the air slightly out of focus. Just the day in a life of a 3 year old….. life is surely good:)
Okay….now it is your turn…..show me what you got!!
Did you take part in Black and White Wednesday?
If you did make sure you leave me a comment and use Mr. Linky so we can all stop by and check out your beautiful black and whites.
If you missed out this week, feel free to participate next week…or the week after, or the week after that…. you get my drift!
You might want to even join me and start a “wall of fame” in your house.
As the weeks go on, I will post pictures of the hallway so you can see the progress…. It will help keep me accountable:)
I guess I better start shopping for frames……
Hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday!
UPDATE: I see a couple of you have already asked about processing…..
Would it be helpful for me to add some info on how I processed the pictures each week?? I know that everyone is not as into photography as I am, so I didn’t want to bore you all with the details……. if you want me to include it, I will gladly do so…. just say the word:) Thanks for playing along…. I can’t wait to make my way around to see everyone’s posts. Right now… I need to get to work:(
