July Photo Challenge - Black and White Portrait 

This photo was taken for a photo challenge at Two Peas General Photography Forum.  The challenge was for Black and White portraits.  My grandson Matthew was a perfect subject for the July photo challenge, as I loved this photo, but more importantly I had already taken it a few days before the challenge was over, I'm such a planner....not.....

While it looks like he was actually eating a hot dog, we were really out feeding ducks that day, and this was "day old bread" that he was just hamming it up with! Let me assure you however he IS this enthusiastic with all of his food normally. Trust me this kid can EAT!

This photo was taken in color, and I used this free downloadable program Picasa to edit it into a black, and white format.  I have used this program for years now, and I continue to love it! It has lot's of other features that can enhance, or correct many of your photos, and if you are like me you need all the help you can get!  I am not paid by this company to endorse this product, I just really love it, and find that it meets almost all of my editing needs.

Here is the same photo in color, each format has something to offer in the way of expressing emotions in a photo, and I will probably print one off in each format:

And here are the lucky recipients of that bread, who showed equal delight in gobbling it up!

Alas, I didn't win this challenge either but tomorrow's another day, with more photo opportunites! Happy Scrapping! Love Penny


Pin It!
