Not The Basic B&W

This week I decided to focus on black and white photography. I don’t know why but there is something I just love about these types of photos. Even though there is no colour to the photo I feel that it puts a lot of character into the photo.

 I have always been interested in trying to shoot some photos that have black and white backgrounds with only one object having colour. An example would be someone shooting a basketball and only have the basketball in the colour. It adds an extra touch to the photo but takes some extra time to figure out how to edit the colour in! I watched a video on YouTube how to properly do it and which app to use! I found that the app Photo Splash worked the best because I was able to adjust the size of the brush when I was editing the photos.

With the extra time that these photos took me to edit I am beyond proud of how they turned out. The more I use the editing apps the more I feel comfortable with using them for the photos I take! I felt it took some getting used to and it got frustrating trying not to edit anything else in colour ! The app is so touchy and was difficult when I was trying to edit colour into small objects! I for one have small hands and fingers and that still didn’t seem to help me ! Next time I do this I plan to buy a stylus pen to be more precise with the lines!

Not sure if people enjoy these types of photos as much as I do but I would love to hear your feedback on them! Anything else you would suggest trying?

    WOW! The editing of these images turned out so good. I too really love black and white photos and especially the depth that only editing one object gives the image.

  2. Hey Reilee! These photos are AMAZING and I really love how they just “pop”. You did a great job at editing because I know that can be super difficult and tedious to get it perfect and just how you want it. I can’t wait to see more of your photos that you capture throughout the semester!

  3. Hi Reilee! Awesome job with these! Honestly, your shots could give some photographers a run for their money. I really enjoy the creativity that you have brought into this project – if I did photography, I never would have thought of this idea! A photo editing app I have on my phone is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I am not sure if you can do the effects you did in these photos, but I find it great for enhancing colours and such.

    Good luck!!

  4. Reilee,

    I really like your creativity. My favourite is the strawberry. I know you mentioned getting a stylus pen. I have a wacom tablet that is also good for editing; more so in software in creative cloud like photoshop or lightroom. But it is worth checking out!
