YOU CAPTURE - BLACK & WHITE



Above 2 taken during a little drama performance with a group in our village.



My first 'group shot' - really pleased with this!


One stunning teenager at our church - who dresses amazingly well :D


My son rockin' down with his Daddy (playing piano the other side of the room). I love the B&W PJ's with the B&W guitar (which actually are all B&W) - so the whole shot worked well for conversion, esp as it was about 11pm (!!) and I had to use a flash - notice the blown eye still :( .


Baby Beautiful. This not the best edit I have of this shot (the best one is not B&W), but it is still lovely.


Getting serious with a water pistol!! I wish I'd had this shot when I ♥ Faces had their 'about the boys' week!


These are all shots I have taken recently. This week I am working to a dead-line trying to get some photos edited for some friend's who are leaving, the picture of the baby is one of those edits :D. I love working with B&W: I love the contrasts, I love the fact that it can disguise seriously blown out red-eye (as in the shot of the little boy with the puppet), I love the dramatic feel that it gives - I just LOVE it!! :-)

Please feel free to comment at will - I love to know what you all think - good, bad, advise - it's all welcome :D

And when you are done commenting, head on over to You Capture and see all the other stunning B&W shots people have posted this week - some are truely stunning!!

I think your group shot of the girls is just great and works well as a b&w conversion. You got some great captures this week!

My absolute fav is the last shot of the boy with the water pistol - cool composition, processing and perspective!

I came over from my blog (k8tography.com) where you left a message on my I heart Faces (feet) picture saying that my son looks scarily like your eldest...is it this boy with the waterpistol? If so, I AGREE! 100%

Wow! They DO look alike! Amazing that you were thinking of calling him Zac! Great name! Long haired boys. I nearly got my guy to get his cut today but something else came up...lucky kid!

Well, first of all, I LOVE your page layout : ). I just switched to one like this and I love the huge pictures. Your shots are great. Especially the baby and the teenager at your church. LOVE them to bits! Do you type your posts in live writer? Do you ever have spacing problems?
