Welcome to another week in my 52-Week Photo Challenge!
This week's challenge is: BLACK
Like with our other color challenges, look for something black and find a creative way to photograph or edit it.
I often find that when I try to capture someone wearing black, using the auto settings, that my camera over-exposes when I attempt to focus on the dark and the rest of the image is blown out. To compensate for this, I focus on the face or another lighter area, press the shutter button part way, then re-frame my image.
In case what I just wrote looked like Greek to you, check out these links for some more info & advice:
