Chris Marquardt and Black and White II

Episode 1809 (1:18:40)

Chris Marquardt

Chris is back to talk about black and white photography.  Black and white photos have an iconic look, stripping away color which can sometimes distract from what the photo is really all about. It also really looks great with geometric patterns. Of course, you can take a color picture and then strip the color information in favor of black and white, but Chris prefers to shoot the image natively in black and white because he can see in black and white as well. It'll also give you more grain information according to the lighting. 

Here are some examples -

The ALPHABET assignment is still going; we have: A C E G H M O P Q S T V X Y Z.  We're still missing B D F I J K L N R U W . So, take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "ALPHABET" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "tgalphabet" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
