Definition – Monochrome Category:

A monochrome image uses a single colour in varying shades from dark to light. The image may be black and white; it may also make use of, or emulate, traditional monochromatic, photographic processes such as sepia toning (brown), or cyanotype (cyan/blue). Any single colour may be used. The Monochrome Category is open with regards to image subject. In addition to general photographic technique and artistry, images in this category will be judged on how successfully the maker has utilized the monochromatic medium.

John Burnett prepared and displayed a digital sight and sound with examples of monochrome photographs.

Next meeting: May 13th – Annual Meeting.
Please email Sara Harley with any items you want discussed at the annual meeting by Saturday May 3rd.
