I’m really liking the freedom that black and white gives. Even the most ordinary items can be made to look interesting. This was done completely in Adobe Lightroom 3. Converted to black and white, and then added the selective color back in using the split toning adjustments. Truly powerful once you get the hang of them.

As some may have noticed, my wife and I have stopped doing the ROYGBIV daily photo theme (as discussed at the beginning of January). While we had originally planned to stick with the theme for four weeks, we decided that after three weeks, we were no longer inspired to simply take photos of items for no other reason than they had the prescribed color. Therefore, we’ve decided to finish out January with a week of monochromatic shots.

This shot originally had a pure blue sky for a background. And while I really liked it, I just felt like something a bit more visually interesting. Hopefully, I’ve succeeded!

I’ve noticed this last leaf hanging on for a week in morning’s half dawn. I was sure it would fall off before I’d actually be home with available daylight. Thankfully, today was absolutely beautiful and sunny so I took the opportunity to get the long anticipated shot!

Sometimes, lighting things from different directions can make for interesting shots. This is a large vase my wife has. I really like the colors and pattern, so I put it on its side and lit it from the inside.
