Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black and White or Sepia Tones


This is my very first time joining Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The reason why I join it for this week theme is because I’m currently forcing myself to shooting in Black and White photos as I’ve mentioned it on my early post here: Ongoing Project.

To me shooting in B&W mode is more complicated than the colour one.

Here my entry for Black and White or Sepia Tones theme:

Hope you enjoyed it.πŸ™‚

  1. Love your photos, Inge, especially the first one. Really, you shoot those in B&W? You got a wonderful result.πŸ™‚ I always shoot in color and transform the photos I like to B&W.

    • Thank you very much, Imelda.πŸ™‚

      Yes, I’ve shot them all in B&W including the primulia flower. Just because I wasn’t too happy with its lighting so I converted to sepia tone.

      I set my camera to JPEG and RAW file so if I wasn’t happy with the B&W ones then just use the RAW file because it’s always in colour.

      I said it’s a little bit complicated shooting in B&W because we have to use colour filters in order to create nice B&W photos. Well obviously we can use the filters in the editing process as well but it’s a little bit challenge to create B&W photos straight out of the camera.πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, Cee.πŸ™‚
      By the way I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to post my link to yours. I seem like have problem with my mozilla firefox at the moment and still trying to solve the problem.

  2. A handful of really nice photographs – and together they make a very strong compilation. I really like the one of your cat, simply because it’s a little mysterious and open.

    • Thank you very much for your very kind comment, Otto.πŸ™‚
      I had nearly deleted my cat’s photo tbh but I thought his eyes make the photo rather unique.πŸ˜€

  3. Beautiful images! I love the one of the seagulls, and I especially love your header image. I have the hardest time taking black and white images, but yours are quite lovely!

    • Thank you very much for your sweet and lovely comment JZ!πŸ™‚

      I am still learning though how to shoot black and white images. I take a chance of the Lent season by shooting in B&W mode.πŸ™‚

  4. Fantastic work here, Inge! That sunset is stunning, and “Cat’s Eye” is downright hypnotic!– you should enter that one in a contest– maybe for Halloween or some other “spooky” category! (Could you edit the eye to make it yellow?– that might be an interesting experiment– just a passing thought… : )

    I, too, really like your header image: beautiful shot, and absolutely perfect for reminding us what Lent is all about. : )

    • Thank you very much for your very constructive comments, Mark! I’ll try out your suggestion for my cat and will post it later in here.πŸ˜‰

      Many thank you for your big support!
