Have you noticed that the tips for taking fireworks’ photos come round a bit too late. As winter is at our doorstep it’s time for double bagging cameras (garbage bags not air tight bags), keeping batteries warm inside our coats, gloves, boots and all the rest that make shooting in cold weather and snow that much more challenging than spring, summer and fall,; pity it lasts so long.

Sometimes the water’s colour does not quite match expectations. Pollution, plant growth, light refections all affect the colour of water. Of the many colours of natural water, green is my least favourite and it did this duckling no favours. In Black and White, however, the green made for a nice contrasting background.

I found this flower quite impressive. In colour the form and large detail dominate the photograph, while the black and white is moody. Two treatments of the same subject one a bit more open the other more focused.

Sparrows are becoming one of my favourite subjects. A large family of birds found almost everywhere. Here I have used black and white to help the subject stand out of its background (a complicated colourful background can confuse the image). This effect is illustrated in the photo above.

One thing black and white does well is the unusual – take any photograph with contrast that has interesting form – and black and white gives tone and a special perspective. You have as much latitude in black and white as colour to tone, enhance detail, add grain etc. In this case I like both the colour and the black and white.

This is a nuthatch, a beautiful acrobatic bird at the best of times. In our area it is certainly not rare and I have posted many colour pictures of nuthatches. Hence my reasoning that it was appropriate to try one in black and white.

Flowers and other flora often make for good black and white photographs because the contrast between the colours is the kind of contrast that suits a black and white treatment. In this case I experimented with the photo you see below.
