High Key Black and White (week 10)

This week’s challenge has been to take a high key overexposed black and white photograph. Here in the south of England we get snow rarely – some years not at all. So when I woke up earlier this week to find we had a light snowfall overnight, I knew that I had to get out and take my photograph for this week’s challenge. These are some white crocuses in our back garden.

Square Crop (week 9)

The assignment in week 9 was a simple one – to produce a square photograph. I treated this assignment very much as an exercise in composition, knowing that the resulting image would be square. I concentrated on positioning the pepper in the left of the frame, and cropped the right. I increased saturation and luminance on the yellow (a lot) and the green (a bit).
