Monochrome – Light and Shadows in the Workshop

The highlights and shadows in textures, which show up best when it is exposed from an angle by a light source, reveal fine details that make it a more compelling subject for monochrome images. The light from the window creates interesting shadow designs and exposes the brick wall and old rafters.

Monochrome – Light and Shadow Designs

Last week we posted images with the color red as the highlight in the photograph. This week we will post monochrome images.

Some of the best subjects for monochrome shots are those with lines and shapes, as well as interesting textures and patterns. Here is an image of the lobby of the Milwaukee Art Museum with light and shadow designs in monochrome.
