Black 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.It's kind to share!
I captured this image only today, and when I first viewed it, I thought I’d try a black-and-white conversion (it was almost entirely green and white, anyway) so as to emphasise shape and line. See what you think…It's kind to share!
OK, 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.
