365 – Week 16

June 9, 2013

This week I played with my Pentax waterproof point and shoot. It seemed appropriate to do an ocean theme since I bought it for my first snorkeling adventure in Mexico. Since there was no opportunity to go snorkeling in Vancouver this week, I settled for some shots of sea shells and sea stars. Then I decided to do some black and white work. Working in black and white is a fascinating process. You have no idea how many varied effects you can get from one photo until you start playing with contrast and filters.

    Lovely work, indeed. The use of shadow and light can speak volumes about the subject, and you’ve captured it very well.

      Thanks, so much R. I do need to experiment more in Black and White. As you say expressing the subject through light and shadow is the core essence of photography. 🙂
