My friend Desley from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist has challenged me to join in the 5-day B&W photo challenge, where I must post a black and white photo each day for 5 days and nominate someone else to join the challenge. I’d like to nominate my friend and master of B&W Andy Townend from Belgian Streets to join the challenge with me.
These photos are also my #13 of Photo101 Rehab. They were captured with my Olympus EM 10, early morning before sunrise. Edition with PickMonkey: Effects B&W; Focal Blur at edges, cropped it and increased definition. The original photo (photo 3) is also a bit dark and without much contrast between the birds and the tree branches. That’s what I liked, as it could look like a painting.
To join the B&W challenge, you must post B&W photography for the next five days, and each day nominate another photographer to enter the challenge.
And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.
Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.
Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.
“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”
I had to think of something to resolve this.
Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, the newcomer Bampa’s Views, and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.
The Rehab rules are simple:
Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.
Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.
Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.
How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.
Have fun! And thanks for participating.
