Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness

I follow Ed Mooney’s Blog. Ed’s subjects are something we don’t have a lot of in Australia – “Built History”- castles, keeps , old stone etc.

Ed submits images to Leanne Cole’s Blog and I thought I’d do the same.Ed does traditional Black & White.I really haven’t done a lot of pure Black & white photography since the advent of Digital photography, and the Bronica & film were consigned to the locker – and I stopped doing weddings.

But I really love Monotone images.Hence the reason for following Ed and a few others.

Here’s my submission to Monochrome Madness

Pandanus Root

Pandanus Root

It’s a straight B& W image, shot at Byron Bay, in the middle of the day, in harsh light – waiting for a decent coloured sunset to occur. ( you couldn’t do that with film, unless you carried two film backs! )

The image below is another one in the series , but is treated as a tonal image.

Pandanus Root with Leaves

Pandanus Root with Leaves

I don’t mind either of these images and I consider them both to be Monotoned – one grey the other red.

Both were taken on an Olympus EPL-5 ,45-200 lens with,16mm extension tube. Developed in Lightroom 5
