The Annex released the Pointsettia headpiece at Winter Solstice. It comes in several colours, all of which are equally and uniquely beautiful. Remember that Winter Solstice is closing on the 19th, after which the headpiece will return to the mainstore. For more information regarding Winter Solstice, please refer to my Winter Solstice post.
Coincidentally, the photo I made for my Winter Solstice post was also my first black and white image, which leads me to the second subject I wanted to address in this blog post. I received a surprising amount of positive feedback on that certain image, mostly in regards to the black and white aspect of it. Admittedly, that image was supposed to be uploaded in colour. However, I felt as if there was something off about it. I switched the tones to monotone, just to see how it looked, and was surprised by the outcome. After a few more minutes of tweaking this new image, I finished it; my first black and white image.
After uploading the monotone image, I felt inspired to do more. So here it is, my second black and white image. I am probably being way too excited about this but I can’t help it. It always gives me such a thrill to discover something new, may it be music, a hobby or a photography technique. I had a lot of fun editing this though and am, for once, quite satisfied with the result. I hope you all like it just as much because I can guarantee that 2017 will be filled with even more monotone images as I start capturing the world through a different filter.
