Lens-Artists Photo Challange 156: “black and white”

If I were asked, this could have been named by me. You know, I’m doing a lot of black-and-white photography. But, this time Anne Sandle is hosting the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

You know, I love black and white photography. Here, I put together a small collection. In case, you also love monochrome photography, feel free, to dig through my archive. You can find the relevant posts quite easily because all of them are tagged properly. Each Monday a new monochrome post is published and each Friday, I’m publishing on a blog dedicated completely to monochrome images. Right after the post is published over there, it is re-blogged here. Unfortunately, WordPress does not keep the tags. So, all of those posts are unfortunately untagged.



For finding such images in your archive, Excire Foto is a big help. When using EXCIREFIRE20 at checkout you can save 20%.

Take care!

    1. Yes, black-and-white photography is so much more, than simply denaturing the colours. In the 1980s I run my own lab (monochrome only, color was too expensive for me). I still love it. You can find a lot of monochrome images in my blog. Feel free, to look around 😊

  1. Marvelous photos, but I expected no less. I see we both went with a shell on the beach. 🙂 I think my favorites are the middle one in the top row, the first one on the left in the second row, and the beach shot taken by the fallen tree. Kudos.


    1. Thank you so much, Janet. It’s not the first time, we had a very similar image in a challenge. Either for LAPC or for the photo challenge run by each Friday. 😊

        1. 😊 I defined the Weekly Photo Challenge for me, to have my post online during the first hour and without checking any other post to avoid getting influenced by anyone. So, it was also a kind of a speed challenge for me. You might be right: great minds work the same 😊😂🤣😂

          1. That’s why I like having the them for Lens-Artists announced in advance. I can do my own thing and schedule my post. I suggested it but evidently lots of people like waiting. Some weeks I just don’t have time to put together a post but I always have Six Word Saturday and One Word Sunday posts.

    1. thanks. Post-processing is quite easy, as usual: raw development, post-sharpening, conversion to bw, and finally inverting the whole image. More important is the photography part: photographing the smoke with a macro lens attached to your camera supported by 2 remote triggered flashes in front of a black background.
