Black and White ‘Garden Photography’


The IGPOTY calendar begins with the brilliant Black & White Photo Project. Be creative, explore different botanical shapes and take advantage of the texture, patterns and shapes emphasised by the increased contrast of black and white.
You can use the existing IGPOTY main categories to theme your black & white images only within the realms of ‘garden photography’.
Through use of black and white, aim to capture a new experience, essence or feeling that colour will struggle to express.

Black and white is a diverse, modern and powerful thematic style that works perfectly with botanical subjects. Winners of this Photo Project have all showed fantastic originality and intention, setting out to achieve a black and white image from the outset that belonged in black and white for a specific reason, rather than converting an old colour image. In this way the photograph gains considerable value, impact and integrity.
