Monochrom Oktober Day 17 by Gavin Otter

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image
I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.
In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.
You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

A wedding I shot during the summer with a couple at the Kristall Hütte in Kaltenbach. The weather was a bit all over the place but we came away with some great shots. Shot on the Canon 6D1 with post in Lightroom CC.

This Low key photo was taken while my youngest was playing around after lunch. There is no background curtain or anything like that but I just played with the settings on the camera with some bright daylight coming in through the window. I did a similar shoton with my eldest some time ago and wanted to test out this style of photography. Shot on the Fuji X-E1 with post in Lightroom CC.
