Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Black and White…plants

Welcome to the third Monday of the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge.  That’s quite a mouthful, but it simply means photos taken with non-traditional cameras.  I use my iPhone, although I used my iPad before I got the iPhone.  The theme for the third Monday is always “Black and White“, something that years ago was the sole option of the photographer.  Black and white imparts a very different feel to photos.  The drama depends more upon the textures, shapes and contrasts than when color is in play.  Both are lovely, but very different.

Here are my entries for the week.  I hope you enjoy them. If you take photos with non-traditional cameras, feel free to join us, this week or any week.

  1. The first one is so soft and delicate

  2. Suzanne says:

    I like your photos – particularly the first one. Must be something in the air – my post is about black and white plants too. 🙂

  3. Sandra says:

    I like the top one; it’s almost surreal.

  4. Janet, the first capture is sweetly captivating. Happy Photo Challenge.

  5. Tina Schell says:

    I’m always amazed at the results people can achieve with an iPhone. I have yet to get a decent photo!, good job Janet!

    • Tina, I find that difficult to believe, having seen your eye for photography. All the photos on my blog for the last several years, or almost all, have been taken with either an iPad or, after the end of last year, with the iPhone. I have a new Nikon that needs me to take the time to figure out all the bells and whistles so I can use it effectively. The last SLR I had was point-adjust-shoot. 🙂


  6. Two views of late summer flowers proves you son’t need color. Light and shadow and texture creates beauty. The Hibiscus is lovely but the passion flower tells a more interesting story.
    Happy Monday,

  7. Traditional flower photography relies so heavily on color, it’s difficult, if not impossible to take that critical element away. I really like how you emphasized the textures and shapes here instead. It really illuminates a whole new perspective for these plants. 🙂

  8. Awesome monochromes for this week. Well done

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
