It feels like color has been gone forever, but it wasn’t even a full month of black and white for me. I had some color early in the month of November, but once the elections were over it was strictly black and white. Or with a green tint. Or sepia. But definitely shot in monochrome.
I really enjoyed November in black and white and am glad that I switched the setting over to monochrome for (most of) the month. I learned a lot about my camera, but I still have lots more to learn.
During the month I posted a fall foliage photo – click here to see it – and was whining about it not looking the same in black and white as it would have in color. Elizabeth was curious to see a color version of the same shot, so I went out and retook the photo in color and, while it isn’t quite the same shot, I am in love with the color version. I have been impatiently waiting for the month to end so I could post the image. I couldn’t quite get the camera to focus on the spot that I wanted, but it is still interesting. Yesterday I finally figured out how to shoot in manual mode. Such an easy thing…I feel so silly.
