Black and White

Welcome to our latest monthly Photo Challenge.

This month the theme is ‘Black and White’.

As you can see, this month’s Photo Challenge is all about shooting in good old black-and-white. Despite all the new technologies, styles and uses to which still images are put in the modern world, the taste for B/W photography has never gone away. And I for one am happy that it still enjoys its place!

You can pick up lots of tips on how to take the a great letter or number shot by reading Phil Surbey’s ‘Black and White‘ Expert Advice article.

Phil will choose the best photograph entry, with the winner to be announced in early August.

Whoever is chosen as the winner will receive a complimentary canvas or a boxed framed print of their winning entry, so best of luck to everyone!

Finally congratulations to Eddy White for winning last month’s ‘Love your City, Town or Village’ Photo Challenge with his entry.

Well done, too, to our two runners-up, Alex Graham with his entry The Local… and Tom Murphy with his entry River Dee By Chester ( The Groves ).
