JLand Photo Shoot #126

           

Thanks again to all of you who played along this past week.  We had 22 participants!  I hope to see lots of photos this week also.  The subject is going to be a fun and interesting one.

This week's JLand Photo Shoot will begin today (on Monday) and is due on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 11 PM EST.  That's Saturday night, for those of you who are getting confused! 

Our subject this week is:

Black and White

You may interpret this subject any way you like. 

You may want to photograph a black and white scene.  Or for those of you who would like, you may want to convert a shot from color to greyscale or black and white. 

For those who don't know how to use photoshop or any other method to convert to greyscale, but would still like to try to convert a photo, one method is to put the photo you would like to convert to black and white into an AOL email.  Then left click on the photo twice.  The photo will now be in the "Picture Editor".  Left click on "Convert to Greyscale".  The photo will now be various shades of white, grey and black!  Now left click "Save As a Copy".  It will be ready to be saved in your "My Pictures" at this time.  Now you are ready to use it for the photo shoot!

I hope I helped you a little bit with these instructions.  Finally I want to give you a page you might want to check out while you are snapping some photos: Tips for Black and White Photography

If you can, get out there and snap some shots, if you don't have time, photographs you've already taken are certainly fine to use also.

After you've posted your entry in your journal/blog, please put the address to your entry in the Comment Section below.  If you need an explanation on how to do this, or need to know any other instructions concerning this photo shoot, please click on the link below:

                    Instructions for JLand Photo Shoot     

Thanks in advance for playing along.  I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with!

Love you all, Krissy :)

  1. WOW....how neat!!!!  My daughter took some fabulous photos last spring as part of earning a badge.  She took some in black and white and look fantastic!  I'll try to get out and about and take some pics.  My entry prolly won't get entered until Saturday afternoon, though.
    Hugs,
