This week’s theme is “Black and White.” I think the first thought is a photo converted to black and white. Below is one I took of my dog several months ago. Rather moody and not really typical of what I do.
However, I wanted to be a bit creative. I have a black cat who is really a fabulous model. I taped a piece of white background paper to a wall, and then positioned a small piece of black backdrop paper in a “diamond” shape over that. NOTE: It’s not perfectly symmetrical so no need to tell me that. I purchased a black/white throw (lots on sale now at the discount stores) and put it over a bench. I recently acquired various colors/designs of ties that a cat or small dog could wear, so I selected a black and white tie. I had originally wanted to photograph my black cat with my white/black cat who actually has more white than black. However, this white/black cat is very skittish and she wouldn’t in any way sit still. So I used only my black cat. I placed a TD5 light stand on the side.
That’s my interpretation this time around of “Black and White”. Click over to Bark & Gold Photography to see their interpretation.
