September 2009 Photo Challenge!

I am embarrassed. It didn't click in my head that it's Sept. 3rd already and that I hadn't posted this month's challenge yet! Sorry !!

This one might be a toughie for some of us, but being a CHALLENGE, let's get inspired and clicking away ! I posted this as a challenge over a year ago and you can check out what others did here: http://havaneseforum.com/showthread....t=light+shadow

Post pictures of your Havs using light and shadow as the main 'prop' and also post in black and white only ! Yup, b&w photos please. It will allow the eye to really see the nuances in shade and sunlight.

There is no need to worry about what camera you have, or the software on your computer. I have a simple, point and shoot and all photo programs allow you to change your pictures into grayscale or black and white. Most cameras also have a setting on them to take the photo without color, so fool around with yours and see what you come up with ! As you can see in my avatar, you can still see the qualities you love in your Havanese, in spite of there being no color other than gray tones. In my case, I love to see Ricky's head shape and wavy hair.

Using light and shadow to guide you, look for opportunities everywhere, indoors or outdoors, to photograph your beloved Havanese!




Post your photos and stories here in this thread for everyone to enjoy and please keep to the topic of the challenge. Thank you!

Here is Havabrat. I like that this has an 'old fashioned' feel to it-

To heck with color and contrast and light, I'm just partial to this little face. Right after a bath, and soft as a cloud ready for kisses.

Those are beautiful photos, ladies! I love the one of Dexter. That little butt in the first post is in dire need of a squeeze. lol The pics do have that old fashioned look to them when they're done in sepia or b&w. nice.
