    Welcome!

    This challenge will run until April 17, 2021
    The B&W Challenge is a fun thing, no competition and no prizes, this challenge will run for a period of two weeks. Please, only new photos taken during the duration of this challenge.

    Let's see some interpretations of the Film Noir genre. Characterized by harsh contrast, prominent shadows, and evocative subjects, Film Noir, to me, is the creation of a mood. It can be still life, portrait, street, and more. Here's a link for some ideas https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiu1p7XpePvAhVYZc0KHUkkCnoQFjAXegQIAhAD&url=https://www.lightstalking.com/film-noir-photography/&usg=AOvVaw29S-XvGdUyIRphsy-oMyOe
    They even show some attempts at the genre in color, but I say - GTFO! Film Noir is for B&W!


    Please enjoy the challenge!
