Get your photos on DPR's homepage!
4 months ago

Hello all, you may have seen our series of reader showcase slideshows on the homepage. We're featuring photos from DPR's forum communities and next we'd like to feature work from the Black and White forum. Here's the most recent article as an example:

http://www.dpreview.com/articles/1636640219/readers-showcase-macro-photography

To have your photos considered, post your favorite black and white shots in this thread with your name (or however you'd like to be credited), a basic caption for each photo (just location is fine, feel free to add more) and a link to your online portfolio if you have one. Watermarks are fine, but large ones tend to be too obtrusive at the size we post photos in these slideshows.

We're excited to see your work!

-Allison

despite the murky blacks I find myself liking this image. It is wonderfully atmospheric and very spooky .  I believe that was your intent and if so its singing in spades so to speak nice one.

Thanx for the comment.  Useful C & C always welcome.

The tour guide had just finished explaining how the same angle had been used many years before in a B horror movie called "Doctor Bloods Something-or-other", which I understand was also in black and white> staring the late Vincent Price. That was on my mind when I did the processing.

The color image is actually nothing like this.

Ian, I love these two images here. Definitely some wall hangers there. The first one is an exercise in lighting and flash? The second image reminds me of being home in New York City in the middle of a snow storm. Nice.

Good luck, though I don't think you'll need it

Photography is about time, space, expression, and - ultimately - capturing light. As easy as it may sound, the process of capturing the "ideal" photograph is far more complex to accomplish as our own perceptions and responses vary according to each individual. Photography is inherently driven by human subjectivity, but the general feeling is that a superb photograph is widely appreciated, as it commonly depicts a striking and universal concept. I believe this process should be sought by many of us, who deeply enjoy capturing and sharing photographs that embrace life and depict what we are.
