Monochrome Oktober Day 5

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.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my facebook page

Das Blut von Solferino

This year my district of the Austrian Red Cross, Bezirk Schwaz, celebrated its 100 year anniversary. As part of the celebrations a performance was commissioned recalling the formation of the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the life of its founder Henry Dunant. I was asked by the Director Richard to come along to the final rehearsal and  take a couple of shots for them at the Waldfestplatz in Mayrhofen.
