Mighty Mud Mania makes Monday Monochrome Madness

Try saying that three times fast.  While going through my files and moving them from the hard drive to the dedicated for photos external hard drive I had an itch to try monochrome images again after yesterday’s church door.  But instead of architecture I decided to go with humans.  As this was the first file in the group I worked on the muddy people from Scottsdale, Arizona’s Mighty Mud Mania event; and I liked the end results.  Using a bit of a high contrast effect to the black and white conversion the images really seem to stand out to me.

I’m not sure if mud looks better in color or not – perhaps it does as it has that muddy color in color – but in black and white the textures of the mud itself and on people truly stands out.

    I’ve always loved black and white photography. Like you said, it brings out the different textures and it makes me notice different things, especially with people. I love these! –Lisa
