TEN AND ONE 2016 Competition Recap: Monochrome

2016-12-14 12

The strength of shooting in black and white lies in its ability to tell dramatic stories without relying on the impact of vivid colors. In the absence of distracting hues, more weight is given on how light shapes the scene and the photographer's task is to capture the arresting form and intense emotions formed. Look back on the striking photographs from the Monochrome category.

Monochrome Highlights

This year, we had plenty of opportunities to appreciate the beauty of black and white photography. Here are some of the most noteworthy competitions held under the Monochrome category.

The Lomography jury is still on a mission of going through the photographs for the open submission round. A separate announcement will be made soon.
