  2. Competition
    In-House Digital Black and White (Internal)Submissions due: Nov 24, 2018

    Competition date: Nov 27, 2018

    Join and participate in our in-house digital black and white photography competition.   Some of the technical aspects of a black and white photograph with impact include:

    • Contracts grabs attention. Make your adjustments to your colours before you change to black and white.
    • Look for the lines, shadows and shapes/textures in your composition.
    • Flat light can create a dreamy tonal range.
    • The use of black makes your whites look brighter.
    • Graphic elements in your composition like leading lines etc can be eye grabbers in black and white.
    • When adjusting your photograph try to achieve some true white and true black.
