It’s November already, where did our year of exploring photography go?
I am taking a chance to summarise October’s photography posts for our new readers, and because there has been a lot of black and white fun this past month!
Black and White Photography Month
I did not plan it this way but the course I have been working on inspired me to try black and white, or monochrome, photographs. I found it such an interesting style of photography I explored and discovered a lot more and could not wait to share my discoveries with you all.
This post is packed with tips and examples. There is more than one way to turn a photograph black and white, did you know?
I discovered that using the upright or ‘portrait’ format means that you may need to think a bit differently but the results can be very effective. Check the post to see how I managed and how you can succeed too.
Not part of the black and white theme but something a bit special. Dot in spectacular yawn mode on her 13th Birthday! Check her out – the image here is not a spoiler and Dot also got a lovely birthday card from friend Pipo too.
I have to admit that these work for dogs too, and any animal photograph you might want to photograph. As with most things practise will always improve what you do. There was a time I could not get sharp fur at all.
This post contains one of my most favourite pictures of Chenzou the Neko Ngeru cafe worker cat, plus I was focused on black and white when I took the other picture in this post.
Thinking in black and white is a habit you need to cultivate to take better pictures without the help of colour.
Introducing Cream in Colour
Finally, an appeal from our friend Savvy, who you will remember for our previous cat adventures. She has an appeal for November’s Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
Meet Cream. He has been at Savvy’s former adoption centre, the lovely Kitty Corner, at Contra Costa Humane for a year.
We visited Kitty Corner when we were in America for BlogPaws® and I know it’s a caring and loving shelter environment but, this guy needs a loving home right now.
This handsome feline has hyperthyroidism – a very easily managed condition that simply requires an inexpensive daily pill that can be given in his wet food. His current medication costs about $20 each month. He’s tolerant at best of other cats but would do best being your one & only feline love.Contra Costa
I hope you have enjoyed our review of October’s posts and were able to catch up on any that you missed. Have a good week, especially our American friends, I know your clocks went back at the weekend!
