MM 2-50: Monochrome Madness

As we said last week in two weeks we will be having our second year anniversary. I got some suggestions, but then someone reminded me that it would be the week of the next theme. I guess we will have to make it special for that reason then. So we will still go with the theme of Close up and maybe you can work the number 2 or two things into the image. I look forward to seeing what you send in.

I took this image last week with my work experience student. I was showing her how to use the ND Filters and doing some long exposures. I have also done this in colour and will put that one up on my other blog.

Monochrome Madness each week and if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Wednesday morning.
  • If you need more help with sending images, and get confused about time zones, etc, well, there is a great website called The World Clock, if you go to that and look at Melbourne time, if it’s before 6pm on Tuesday evening, then you can still send me images.  If it’s after that time, you can send me an image, but it will be set aside for the following week.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please remember to resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.

Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.

    These are wonderful. I especially love the white flower with the vignette. Vignettes really work if they’re not overused.

  9. Hi Leanne, I just wanted to say hi. I haven’t been commenting much recently. I am writing a book about blogging which will include some of my posts about ty blogging journey. Along with the posts I included some of the comments. Yours are among them, if you don’t mind me publishing them. Let me know! 🙂 Love your photos and your wonderful magazine. The magazine is top notch! WOW!

    • Hello there Marsha, that sounds like a good book to do, and of course you can use my comments. Thank you, we have worked hard on the magazine. Good to get some positive feedback.

  11. All the images are gorgeous and I especially love your architecture photography. What is the procedure you follow to convert your colour images to B&W? Is there a previous post where you explain this? I’m interested to know your workflow.

    March 26, 2016
    • Thank you, good question, I haven’t really talked about it, I don’t use plugins, tend to do the conversion in camera raw and go from there.
