Welcome! There have always been subjects that do much better in black and white than in color. Images in black and white are often simpler in design and more focused on the essence, without too much distraction. The interaction between lines and surfaces or contrasts between light and dark can be beautiful and appeal to the viewer much more than with color work. This challenge is all about learning to "see, think and design" in black and white and not just converting color photos... This theme invites you to be creative. The concept of double exposure can be interpreted broadly, that is to say realized in camera, but also by combining images in photo editing or by merging film negatives when printing on paper etc. Think outside the box, for example, combine a positive with a negative image or an ICM with a tack sharp image. What to think of a combination of images made with a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens. The possibilities are endless, if you prefer to use the term 'multi exposure' instead of double exposure if you want to combine 3, 4, 5 or even more images, please do, as long as it's in B&W...let's have some fun! The Black&White Challenge is a fun thing, no competition, no prizes, but hopefully a lot of learning, experimenting and also experiencing how others approach a theme. Every digital photographer and film photographer can participate with as many photos as desired during each challenge. Please, new photos only for this challenge! With every challenge it's stated what the first, subsequent theme will be, so, ultimately digital and film photographers can work on themes a few weeks in advance, if they wish. ******************* The theme for the next challenge is 'ROUND' and please, don't start uploading images for this challenge yet, but wait until a new thread is opened for this theme on February, 16.
