The Zone System Rumble Winners Announcement

16

Nothing is ever truly black and white, and this is proven by the winners of our The Zone System Rumble! Check out the different kinds of zones between the two opposites after the jump! And no, there aren't 50 shades of grey here.

Pure whites, middle greys, and pure blacks are terms that you’d encounter often in the study and practice of black & white photography. The Zone System Rumble endeavored to showcase the community’s understanding and application of the famous Zone system popularized by Ansel Adams and here we are! We’ve chosen 5 winners who’ll get 5 Piggies each. Congratulations and keep on shooting those monotones!

A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day.

    The Beauty of Black and White

    A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
