Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge ~ Seeing Nature in New Ways


Nature, bursting with color that captures the eye. As part of stretching and growing in my photography that is in its infancy, I struggle with the conversion of color to black and white. I’ve decided to try something a little new, that those of you who might follow me on Instagram, can see. I’ve posted the color version there. The monochrome version jumped out at me as I took away color; the lines sharp, the detail broken down to its essence. I’m learning to see with new eyes.

Photo taken with an iPhone 6Plus in Camera+, edits in the native camera.

  3. I truly struggle with the conversion too .. I don’t really feel comfortable with it 😃

      Hi, Julie. It has taken me well over three years to a true feeling of comfort with taking away color; and now, there are some photos that just transform into more beauty when I see them in black and white. Thanks for visiting. Have a great week.
