I'm so excited to have this new, fantastic Photography Challenge join our annual Next Designer Contest & Layout Artist Contest. Please note: you can join all three.

Our Photography Challenge follows the same time frame as the NDC & LOA. All challenges will be posted 6:00 a.m. EST Monday and due by 23:59 EST per the scheduled dates:
Note: The Grand Prize Winner is determined by a random drawing of participants in all four weeks. You do not need to win, merely submit an entry each of the four weeks, to be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing on September 30. The Grand Prize Winner will receive the MCP Four Seasons™ Photoshop Actions (or elements version).

Week 3: Photography Challenge!
The winner this week receives Jodi Friedman's fantabulous MCP Winter Whirlwind™ Photoshop Actions (or elements version).

Your challenge is to shoot a Black & White Portrait photograph. Please include your camera settings and/or editing techniques in the description under your photo.
  • Photo must be on theme: “Black & White Portrait”.
  • You must have only ONE image in your submission. No collages.

I love these! This is my favorite round so far. Black & white tells more of a story, I think. I'm sharing my favorite b&w photo. It is of my youngest & my oma, taken late last fall:

I originally posted a photo of a leaf. LOL Guess unless I'm a bug that's not quite the portrait that you guys were looking for. Lemme go find another photo and repost.

Here is is my portrait of my kiddo.


Canon PowerShot SX260 HS
ISO 100
23.6 mm
0 EV
F/5
1/125
Shot in color, Recolored in B/W with iPhoto Software
Coffee Shop Action -- Once Upon a Time to get a slight blur on everything but the face.

I totally wish I had her 9 yr old creamy skin!!!

I really like this picture of my granddaughter. Even the fly-away hair! I chose not to fix that. I love what converting to black and white did to the photo.
