November in b&w
22 October 2008
Since two or three people have expressed interest (that's roughly double what I thought it'd be. har har.) in my monthlong November black and white photography project, I thought I'd go ahead and make a button and a spot to link to people who would like to join in. So feel free to take the button above and put it on your site, linking to this link exactly, which will contain all the posts for this project as the month progresses.
There aren't really any rules. My plan is to put my camera in b&w mode on November 1st and change it back to normal on December 1st. So every photo I post here in the month of November will be in black and white. If you want to play, I would prefer that you put your camera in black & white mode (since that's half the fun), but I'm not going to complain if you convert a particularly nice color photo to b&w. Don't feel you have to spend the whole of November in b&w, but if you want to play along at any point in the month, create a post on your blog with your b&w photos, then either leave me a comment or send me an email at springtreeroad (at) yahoo (dot) com with a link to your post. I will link to your post in my next post and put a general link to your blog in my sidebar.
All the fun starts November 1st (not before! I'm not ready yet!!).
What a fun idea! I love black and white photos. Can't wait to see what everybody posts.

This will be fun, Maya. Thanks for making it a thing that we can join in on. I will be sure to post some B&W on my blog at some point during November.

I'd love to join in! My favorite thing to do is shoot in black and white---and I haven't done that in quite some time!

Excellent--I'm in desperate need of inspiration!

I just now figured out how to find the setting to switch my camera (Kodak Easyshare Z730) to B&W. I am going to have so much fun with this! I can't do NO color at all, since Nov. is all about changing leaves before the grey of winter, but I can switch back and forth. I'm in!

I would like to play along, but I have to post MANY MANY MANY family sessions in November...and they cannot ALL be black and white. So how would you like me to play along? Let me know. Maybe I can just post the particular photo I am entering?
Let me know! :0)
