52-Week Challenge: Inspiration – Black and White

week 3

This weeks challenge was simple. Make a black and white image. Just take any ol’ image and make it black and white. Easy, right?


There is more to black and white than desaturation. It is all about contrast. While I don’t feel the image I captured this week has high enough contrast, it does work well for a black and white. There is enough contrast to make the highlights pop. Then again, I went for a film noir look. I used limited lighting to achieve this look. In fact, I am literally holding a tactical flashlight covered in gaffers tape off to the side to do this. It could be done a little better, but overall it works for a weekly challenge.
