Picture Fall: Stripping Down

stripping down

Today’s prompt:

Photographically speaking, this season’s appeal is so much about texture. Find something today that begs to be photographed for its mere texture alone. Don’t pay attention to color but keep your eye out for light. Light, when shed in the right way can accentuate and even enhance the texture you can see with your eyes and help you photograph it effectively.

Once you shoot your image, literally strip the color away in post processing. Take all the color out (or most of it anyway) using a simple photo editing program. This will really help you see the texture of your subject and give it a more timeless appeal.

Background, sepia. Purple seed pod, SOOC. Edited with Picnk.

The following were runners up in my submission. All shot with the monochrome function.
