san diego child photographer | fifty-two on friday {2} black and white

This is my second of 52 posts with my Fifty-Two on Friday project.  Thank you for the wonderful response to the self portrait in week one.

I have joined a group of 19 other photographers to challenge each other on a theme every week.  We all specialize in different areas of photography.  If you spend some time on each of the blogs, you will be immersed in the talents of some of the best newborn, child, family, senior, engagement, wedding, and commercial photographers.

Our posts are designed sort of like a progressive dinner.  Every post will list a link to another photographer’s blog every week,  so you can see everyone’s interpretation.  Hopefully you will be able to pick up cool tips, tricks and learn from our incredibly talented group of women. This week’s theme is black and white.

Black and white conversions in digital photography have several methods.  One is setting your digital camera to only take a black and white photo via an on-camera filter, or another is via a post processing editing method using photoshop or other editing software.  These methods could include channel mixer, lab color method, gradient map or desaturation.

Brooks gave me 5 minutes for his little session this week and this suits him perfectly.  It totally represents a part of his little personality right now.  He’s growing up and the daily responsibility that comes with that, at home and at school, is sometimes hard… for us both.

I’ll have a chance to show off the silly, goofy side and the cuddly, loving side of him soon.  For now … here’s my boy.  LOVE!

To see the next awesome photographer and her (drop dead gorgeous) newly designed blog, head on over to Stephanie Moore Memphis TN Photographer.
