Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. Remove the color from photography and what do you get? The traditional black-and-white (B&W) photo. Show us your best monochrome (grayscale) images that focus on composition, tone, and form. No selective color, no color tints; just black-and-white like the good old days. The judge will be looking for images that illustrate the theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
CONTEST JUDGE: Kevin O’Connor started photographing in B&W when he was 10! He’s now a professional photographer, designer, and color management expert (ironic!). He teaches well-received classes in these subjects, delighting his students with wit, patience, and a deep knowledge of these subjects gained over 35 years of professional work. He celebrates seeing other photographers’ work as they celebrate light and shadow, composition and form. B&W is Kevin’s first love.
