It’s time for another Photo of the Month competition! Each month we run a competition with a new theme to give you the chance to win £100 in Photoion course vouchers. The competition is open to everyone.

December’s topic is Black & White Photography.

To the untrained eye, Black & White Photography may seem as simple as taking a regular image with a black and white “filter”, but the reality is much more complex and interesting.

Here are a few tips to help you take the best images possible:

–  As usual, light is vital in photography, so pay close attention to your lighting. Experiment with multiple light sources to create interesting images.

– Play with the contrast in your image. By using your lights effectively you can create true black shadows that disappear from the frame and give the images wonderful depth.

– Pay attention to colors which are also paramount in Black and White Photography.
