Default PKP006 Technique (03/21/18)

Challenge: embrace the black & white photo
Keyword: PKP006
Hostess: Melissa (mollymoo951)


Welcome to the wonderful world of pocket pages! An introduction to the challenge can be found
what pocket page challenge . <--click for details

The black & white photos of today are a far cry from the black & white photos from years gone by. With all the color, why choose to use black & white?


- As a design element. Black & white photos can be striking as a focal point. It is very elegant, clean and crisp.
- To create cohesiveness in a group of photos. Sometimes a black & white photo just goes better with the layout than a color photo. Maybe the color in the photo is not the right color for the group of photos or the product you wish to use; a change to black & white makes it go together much better.
- To improve photo quality. If the only picture you have is blurry, sometimes changing the photo from color to black & white improves the quality, making the blur less noticeable.
- To decrease the visual clutter. Sometimes changing a photo from color to black & white will decrease the visual clutter and make a distracting background less noticeable.


Your challenge this week is to embrace the black & white photo. You can do this by:


- Doing a mix of color and black & white photos in one weekly / monthly spread. OR
- Doing an entire weekly / monthly spread in black & white photos.


I've done both, with satisfactory results. Looking forward to seeing what you create.


Create your pocket pages and come back, share with us in the gallery. Post a link to your project in this thread so we will be sure to see it! Copy and paste the keywords above when posting your project to the gallery.

Used a sepia pic instead of black and white hope that counts!

Thanks for the prompt, first pocket page I've done. I printed a couple of b&w and it meant I added 3 photos instead of cutting back to 1.
