52 Week Photo Project - Week 3: Nightly Routine

This week's theme is "Nightly Routine" I decided to focus on Tuesday night because that is the night that all my kids have their extra curricular activities. I am just sharing two of the pictures I took here but you can read more about my intense Tuesdays on my personal blog.

I wanted to talk about black and white images. More specifically when do I convert a colored image to black and white. The answer is simple. If the image is more powerful as a B&W then I convert. If it doesn't add to the photo or it detracts from the photo then I leave it in color. In these particular images, I felt they were more powerful as B&W. There is some cool patterns going on along the back wall but the foam was a vibrant green color. In color it distracted the eye from the focus (Brock and his guitar). In B&W it was less distracting and the pattern was move obvious and interesting.

In this picture of Kassie, she is sitting in the dressing room. All the bags and cloths sitting behind her were distracting but in B&W they are less distracting and the focus returns to Kassie.
