Member Photo Share Theme: Black and White
“Austin winters can be a bit drab. Gray, cloudy days, low sun angle, dead herbage and (some) bare trees. A good time to think in shades of gray. So find or create a few pictures that remind us of the visual power black and white photography. Reprocess a color shot into B&W. Find a subject that is already B&W (a zebra, sea gull or the right species of duck). Photograph on a gray, foggy morning. After all, B&W is where it all began.” (Bill Galloway)
Please name your 2 images as follows: 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_Last Name.jpg. No need to resize – just make sure it is a jpeg file. Send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, February 13th to insure they will be shown at the meeting. Do NOT send to Jerry – he will be in Costa Rica! (Note: As always, if you prefer to submit something other than the theme topic, you may do so.)
