Black-and-white photos are timeless, but sometimes tricky to compose. There are no colors, no bright hues to enliven the image. Our Photo of the Day does pretty well, sans the kaleidoscope.
Our Photo of the Day was taken by Singapore-based Lomographer *shariff* using a *Lomo LC-A+* loaded with Ilford XP2 Film. The shot defies all convention: no rules on foreground, no rule of thirds, and no golden ratio. It does adhere to the 10th Golden Rule of Lomography, however: Don’t worry about any rules.
Nevertheless, this black-and-white unconventional composition is one fine photograph. Congratulations to shariff for being our Photo of the Day winner.
Many of us may prefer experimenting and shooting with wild and whacked-out colors. But, if you want to give your photographs a timeless and mysterious touch, going black and white is the best way to go!
Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!
