“Calendar in Yellow” Cedar Park, 2017


Today’s photo is a yellow tint version of a black and white image I took of a calendar in our house. Why would I tint it like that? Well, I am trying something new – making monochrome images.

I guess I was looking for a new photographic challenge. I thought about taking black and white images for May, but then I came across this article How to Use Monochrome Color in Photography by Megan Kennedy and it really piqued my interest. Especially the yellow train photo.

I’m going to try to either take photos of isolated colors or tint black and white photos to achieve the look I want. I haven’t done monochrome images in a long time… but I seem to remember experimenting with it back in the late ’90s in the early days of Photoshop… probably version 4.0 or so. It was so long ago!

But back to the present day. 😃 The month of May will be “Monochrome May” this year. We’ll see if I can make it all the way through!

I hope you had a nice day.
