Shooting in Black and White, Monochrome

Day 12 of #photo101 brings us to a world of monochrome.

In the editing process, I emphasize deep blacks and work with just enough light to create the mood that I want, altering elements like contrast and sharpness. If I’m working with photographs of, say, a ghost town or a place with a history, I might use a sepia tone rather than strictly black and white to tell the story, so it feels historical and aged, yet monochromatic and simple.

I alway love black and white photos but I tried many attempts and I could not get the correct “feel” of black and white. Here are some of my best attempts.
