Photo101: Day Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome
From geometric patterns on skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.
Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget black and white, or monochrome, which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways.
When we talk about monochrome in photography, we’re referring to images developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color.
Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors.
Great filters, very dramatic images
great pictures and colour schemes- what is the film you used ?
Great shots! :-)
I am enjoying your Skies as an inspiration to complete my book “Wy’s Skies of My Sixties.”
I was using my phone that day – motorola motox – converted to Grayscale using channel mixer in photoshop then chose different emphasis for colour filtres
Awesome photos of the Bay Bridge!
Wonderful photos, I love the way you processed these.
Great shots with a phone yet. awesome I guess I just need practice and patience.
All three photos are very interesting. I especially like the middle photo with a bit of a person in it. Kindest Regards Cheryle
That’s my version of a selfie… Thanks
