AND, the winner of the Paper Mama Black and White challenge is…

NOT ALWAYS PICTURE PERFECT

This weeks guest judge: 
Tez from: Not Always Picture Perfect.

This weeks challenge: Black and White.
The challenge: The challenge will be based around your children. Take or find a photo of your baby (or kid… or puppy… or kitty) in a black and white photo. This week I’m encouraging you to work with photo editing programs. Just play with it and have fun. I’ll include some links to some free editing programs (If you don’t already have one).

Tezzie’s picks:

1) Why Tezzie chose this photo: This is such a fun shot, where the viewer immediately gets drawn in.  It’s a beautiful b/w conversion, has stunning lighting, and is nice and sharp…but what makes the shot, of course, is the hilarious expression on her face…it actually made me laugh out loud, which is hard to do!”

2) Why Tezzie chose this photo:Sweet Minty captured my heart early on, this week…I couldn’t get this image out of my mind; his soulful eyes, looking slightly ashamed yet playful at the same time…it makes me think he’s just got a ”talking to” for playing with the tree, but he just wants to go right back to it again!  A fun holiday photo, taken from a great point of view…and, that added twinkle is like the ”cherry on top” :D”

3) Why Tezzie chose this photo: I love a photo that tells a story…that chubby little hand, trying to reach the dog is absolutely precious!  Seeing it, makes ME want to reach out and pet the dog too J .  This is a great example of how converting a photo into black and white helps enchance it…I think colours would have distracted from the scene too much, and having it in b/w created instead a timeless shot!”

4) Why Tezzie chose this photo:Just sweetness;  summer fun in the sun, the mischief in the smile, the crinkled nose…and, oh those curls!  Lighting is the key ingredient in this one…taking a good picture in full sun is hard to do as it can create such harsh contrasts, but in this case it works FOR the photo, highlighting those perfect curls.  One can’t help but to fall in love with this sweet little boy <3″

5) Why Tezzie chose this photo:I love the softness of this black and white conversion, that has a hint towards sepia without it being too much.  He is so intent on his task, and what makes this so special to me, is the timeless quality the photo posesses…”
