My Sunday Photo: 11 June 2017

Head of Dock PlantBlack and white photography is often referred to as monochrome or in other words, one colour. However, monochrome doesn’t have to be black and white; it can be any single colour of your choice. In nature, one obvious choice is green. Here, I have used a wide lens opening (aperture) to give a shallow depth of field, so that the dock plant stands out in sharp focus against a blurred background.

Alphabet Photography Project: O is for Orange

Close-up ClementinesOK, so these are clementines, not oranges, but I’m thinking of the colour orange. The real point I’m making in this photo is that monochrome doesn’t have to necessarily mean black and white; any colour can be chosen to dominate a picture, with interesting effects. Here, the absense of variety of colour leads the eye to study the patterns caused by texture, instead.
