I realize, coming off of my last post about Baby Ada’s hands, that you might think that I like to work in black and white. Yeah…I’m guilty! I do like the look of it. It still reminds me of growing up, chemicals for developing (Yikes, my eyes are watering just typing that…), and the wonder and amazement of seeing a print appear on paper…every time. Would I go back? Not a chance, but I digress! (*Grin*)
Recently, over at Project 52, we were given an assignment to shoot something Black and White in Black and White.
I had the idea to shoot two concepts, one depicting something of a story, and the other more of an “art for art’s sake” idea. The first idea below is the art for art’s sake idea. It’s a common design, and the concept resonated with me fairly strongly. Yes, that is salt and pepper in a rounded cutting board.
I’ll show you the other idea after the jump.
The other idea I had was that of the end of a chess game. White is surrounded, cornered, “Resigned,” if you will.
