B&B Monthly Photo Contest--August--Vote

Discussion in 'The Darkroom' started by AllenG, Aug 15, 2012.

  1. How about a photo contest?

    Rules: You must be the photographer
    One entry per month
    Try and make the image a recent one

    Theme: monotone

    The winner gets bragging rights and the pick of the following month's theme.*

    At the end of the month Jason will close the thread to entries and we'll have one week to vote for your favorite image.


    *When you win try to keep the themes general, and since B&B has members world wide no geographically specific themes--such as desert landscape or European cityscapes, etc.


    So, what say y'all? Lets see your black & white images.
    Good luck and good light.

    Great idea! I have to see if the 3G has a B&W feature. I swear this new assignment will have me dropping a months salary on camera equipment! Come on guys, show your skills!
     
  3. I'll start things off:

    Excellent idea. Very much looking forward to viewing the creations of the talented folks here on B&B.
     
  5. I'd like to put up a newer pic, but since my darkroom is only partially ready, I'll do an old one.

    This is a picture of my college roomates DW drum kit set up before a gig at the Terrapin Brewery.

    Taken on a Nikon F2 Photomic 50mm lens using Kodak BW400CN. Film was processed at a local Walgreens, then scanned in.

    Here is one of mine. I am no photographer, but this subject matter is important to me... my three children.
    Taken with a Nikon point and shoot, a couple years ago.

    Only one entry? I dunno. This is fairly recent, taken on a camping trip a few months back. I just used a Panasonic Lumix LX-3. I'm not taking an SLR camping with me these days...
