Today I have converted a dahlia for Monochrome Wednesday. One thing about these posts is that it is another opportunity to experiment.
Monochrome Wednesday – A dahlia
Trying to work out what to do each week isn’t always easy. Some subjects lend themselves really well to monochrome, while others, well, not so much.
Flowers are like that. Some are great, others not. I have been finding that white flowers, or ones that are lighter seem to work best.
So while looking for a photo today, I had already decided that I wanted to do a flower. I just needed to find one.
I started one that was a fushia colour, but it really didn’t look that good when converted. It really needed the colour, if you were to ask me. So I closed that image and went searching. I always seem to gravitate to the folders of images I have of dahlias.
This is one that I found that had some interesting detail in the centre. It has been converted and a few other things done.
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you are enjoying the monochrome challenge again. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
