3. Hiding
3. Don’t shoot!

This week Lens and Pens asked us to consider how phones and tablets are changing  the art form of photography. I have used two typical dinning out photos, that so many of us take. and transformed them into black and whites to see if they can become artful.  I played with the idea of what do you love by starting with the crystal heart.

Today I know ask you, not which you like, but which picture do you spend more time looking at and why? Which I guess might be the same as like.

Sally also had a link to this video of 20th century Black and White Photography for all of us Black and White Lovers

. Happy Monday.

Here are other entries for this week’s challenge:

  1. I am learning a lesson here for sure. I quickly shot te crystal this morning to add to the challenge. I did choose this image because of how the background merged with the heart. thanks for the feed back.


  2. I relate to all three. The first one reminds me of when I used to take unusual picturres like that. The second one reminds me of the “olden days” when I was young. The third reminds me of the relatives I used to try and get a picture of. lol
    So over-all, I like the second one.


    1. well thought out reviews of each, Neal, The kiss was fun. The 1Phone lets me take a series so I can catch nice moments. A kiss or a “don’t shoot.
      Practice with your phone around the house. the Heart is just hanging in my window 🙂


  3. All three are effective in black and white. Originally I kept going back to number one because I was trying to ‘figure it out’. but I’m pretty fond of the third shot. I don’t think it would be as interesting in color, but the b&w add a timelessness to it. It becomes the iconic ‘don’t take a pic of me’ pic!


    1. I’m so glad you see that iconic look of 3 that is what I was going for especially after watching the video of classic 20th century photography. The first one would be a nice greeting card.


    1. I just printed out the heart and it kept it’s sparkle, a lot of iPhone pics don’t look so good printed… The kiss does look like bus capture. It was sweet friends of my daughter’s during dinner.
