TOPIC: Black and White Photo Assignment

Black and White Photo Assignment 2 years 10 months ago #5454

This week’s Keep Shooting photo assignment will be black and white. Content doesn’t matter, just make it the very best black and white image you can. Photos must be taken in between now and January 24th and must be posted to the forum by 5pm Eastern on the 24th. I am going to try to critique more of them over on the forum so be sure to get them posted. Good luck, the winner’s photos will be announced in a few weeks here on Keep Shooting Monday.

I think I am going to extend this assignment through January...fyi. I had a few people tell me 2 weeks is too short. Thoughts?
Please use the forum for photo questions instead of a private message, that way everyone can learn.

I think if the majority is requesting it, sure why not. It doesnt hurt to test it out. 2 weeks works well enough for me. If Im able to participate in an assignment, great. If not, there's always the next one.

I think 2 weeks is long enough, thats plenty of time. Christmas time is probably the only time extension is needed.
