Black & White Still Life. Again.

This is just another B&W still life shot in RAW. I've ranted about the benefits of monochrome shot in RAW enough, I think. You get the idea.

Aperture: f/8
Shutter Speed: 2 seconds
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 43 mm

Once again, I hate the composition on this. I guess that's a good thing about shooting B&W photos though: I tend to notice things like that more, and it should force me to become a better photographer, which is the whole point.

I think I'm going to try experimenting with some color tints on my still lifes, just to give them a bit of flavor. We'll see where this goes.


  1. Black and White is kind of addicting isn't it.

  2. I agree with Steve. I want to do more and learn more about monochrome. My post today is a monochrome one as well - but one that occurred naturally - no post-processing desaturation needed!

    I like your shot!
