I am humbled to be nominated to participate in the Black and White Challenge, a meme going around fb right now. The rules require the nominee to post a black and white photo daily for five days. Although b&w is definitely my favorite form in terms of what I appreciate looking at, it is not my forte as a photographer. But all the more reason to accept the challenge.
Day 1: I am still working on editing DSLR photos using iPad apps and am really enjoying the results. Actually, I'm enjoying the process even more than the results. It's addicting. The biggest problem I'm having is how the final product translates to other electronic devices after I'm done on the iPad. For example, the vignette in this photo below was not anywhere near as dramatic or contrasty on my iPad as it is on the laptop I'm using to post now. It was a better photo on the iPad.
A short road trip this weekend gave me lots of practice with the camera in a different setting and using the iPad to upload and edit. The iPad part failed miserably because the cord I brought was only for charging, not uploading. This is why I practice: to get it right before the next India trip in five short weeks. In the interim, I have lots of fun photos to play with.
