    Welcome!

    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*)

    Before you eat your eggs, visualize what the eggshell looks like in an macro mode with grazing light, or what the effect will be of a plateau full of eggs in backlighting? What abstract images will you get when photographing scrambled eggs and how fascinating is a composition with egg yolks in black and white? Who dares to photograph a falling egg yolk with a high shutter speed, enough challenges, so...bon app├ętit!

    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 'Only Negatives' and please, don't start uploading images for this challenge yet, but wait until a new thread is opened for this theme on March, 29

    *******************
    *) only new photos taken from the date of the theme's announcement may be used, also any creative photo-edits (in whatever form) may only be realized with photos that were taken from the date of the theme's announcement

    I love this challenge. I believe that this challenge will expedite photography knowledge, much in the same way as @Derrel and GARY A have directed both publicly and privately. These great men have always instructed us newbies for growth.[/USER]

    @gk fotografie loves us the same.

    Do the photos have to be abstract or cooked eggs? Not sure if I'm reading it right.
    I took a couple egg pics (not abstract and not cooked) so not sure if I can use them. Ta

    Wow man, thank you, I'm just getting very shy here! I hope that the B&W Challenge will become a breeding ground for creativity and lots of new ideas for enthusiastic members of TPF :icon_smile::icon_smile::icon_smile:
