Default Challenge: Feb. 18 - Feb. 24, 2004

I liked the example I gave of white-on-white in the announcement, so that's the subject for this week's challenge. It doesn't matter what objects or scenes you choose to photograph; what matters is that they be predominantly white-on-white. The challenge in this is, of course, to manage through metering and lighting to delineate one white object from another. (Off-white is an acceptable substitute.)

Okay, guys, come out shooting!

Good, clean fun....but figures a Northeasterner would go for the white on white category to start. Oh well, guess us southerners will just have to use our imaginations. Actually, Barbara, I'm a transplanted northerner who spent many days in the sub-zero temps of Oswego, NY. If you need any inspiration for white on white then take a trip up there. More white than you'll know what to do with. I miss it but not that much!

My brain says it's white on white. So what if the background is dark? The point of the exercise is to be able to differentiate tones that are extremely close, and you did it beautifully. Shape and the shadows defining those shapes were needed, and you did it. On top of this, you used the contrast of the soft white rose on the hard-surfaced white guitar to further define your subjects.

While the rest of us are still floundering about for white ideas, you're way out ahead of us.

Just to add something else I like about it, I like the reflection of the rose on the table (or whatever it is on.) Well done.
