A few weeks ago my friend Lisa Kurt challenged me to take part in the 5 day black and white challenge on instagram. It took me awhile to find my flow and my first shot for inspiration but I am now 3 days in am enjoying capturing images in black and white.
For me capturing images comes from what I see around me. Sometimes I pull over in the car because I see something that makes me go “WOW”; other times it may be a city capture on a trip or a moment with my family where I want to remove all the color and just see the variations of black, white and grey in the image.
The weather in Reno the past several days has been rainy, sunny, foggy, cloudy, snowy and at times dark. It is the perfect time and location to capture black and white images because of how the sky appears.
Thanks for the challenge Lisa and I will report back with the final two photos at the end of the 5 days. In the meantime if you want to see other black and white photos the hashtag on instagram is #5dayblackandwhitechallenge and dont forget to follow me on instagram to see them in real time.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
