Photoh Competition 110: Black&White Photography Finalists Montage


The theme for the photography challenge over the past fortnight was Black & White Photography

Capturing our colourful world in black&white shots is about more than just desaturating your photos in editing. It's all about seeing and using the rich tones, contrasts and patterns that can be emphasised with black & white.

It was free rein with subject choice this fortnight, and we were absolutely blown away by the sheer range of different topics and places captured by your cameras!

All of the photo entries from this competition theme can be seen on the Photoh Facebook page competition here.

We spent a LONG time going back and forth and reviewing all of the photos multiple times in order to pick the finalists, and of course the winner. It was tough this fortnight!

Sydney in particular did very well, and at one point we had 3 photos earmarked from Sydney residents for a spot in the finalists list.



Here are the finalists for the Black&White Photography competition:

The Winner

The winner this fortnight is...Ann Hodgson from Sydney!

Congratulations Ann! You have won a $100 photography voucher!

It can be a bold choice to use black&white when we live in a colourful world, especially when you're photographing a building full of rich tones and colours like Ann has here - the QVB in Sydney.

You would usually associate stained glass windows with colour, so we love how Ann has taken a leap and instead allowed us to really focus on the deep contrasts between light and shadow, and also the intricacy of the windows. It forces us to appreciate the scene that Ann has carefully framed in a whole different way than how we would naturally with our eyes, which takes creativity!

Absolutely nailed the brief on this one, and it certainly got us thinking and feeling inspired!



The theme for next fortnight is Exploring Camera Angles in Photography

We hope that this is going to be a challenging one for you all!

Picture a typical tourist location, with tourists stopping for a couple of seconds, holding their camera up to their eyeline and snapping a quick shot of the area. Surely over the course of the day, there would be hundreds of similar photos taken, all from the same camera angle. Sounds boring, no?

So what if you change your viewpoint, and explore some new camera angles to capture the scene from? What can you come up with?

You could try worm's eye view to make the surrounding area look big and imposing, or shoot from above to make things look smaller than life.

Think about how you can use different perspectives to create some really interesting and perhaps unusual shots.
