Learn By Doing Photography Assignment #10 Seeing in Black and White
This week simply turn your dial to Monochrome and shoot in black and white or take your picture in color and edit your photograph later. Either way take a look at the world around you in black and white.

When you think of all the great black and white photographers, I think of the phrase “Seeing the world in black and white”. The great black and white photographers can see the contrast, see the light, they know that red and green are about the same tone and will produce the same color gray.

The only way to see in black and white is to practice… So pick up your camera this week and take some pictures in monochrome. I personally like to take mine in RAW, this way I can shoot them in black and white with the camera and still be able to compare the images in color when I get home. Looking at a red apple, taking a picture and then immediately seeing what color it will be on your viewfinder is pretty amazing!

Below is the same picture in color…
