The West Ky Photography Club is hosting a month long photography challenge titled “September in Black and White.” If your camera has a black and white mode then we encourage you to shoot with it, otherwise you may convert your color photo to black and white after shooting.Most of us don’t do much in the way of black and white anymore and we think folks will find it a refreshing change and perhaps a bit of a challenge as well to …do so.All pictures should be uploaded to our Facebook site or the Club’s Gallery site in black and white. Members may upload their daily image to a special gallery that will be on the main page of the club’s Gallery site or here on this event page.The Challenge will begin at midnight on September 1, 2010 and run through September 30, 2010.This will also offer those participating in the year long photo challenge a way to do two challenges at once.We look forward to seeing your world in black and white starting September 1st.If you have questions, need software help, or motivation, leave a post here on the event page or on the club’s main Facebook page.Post your photos for this event to this gallery(note, you will have to login to post your photos)http://www.westkentuckyphotographyclub.org/gallery3/main.php?g2_itemId=112545Facebook Challenge Event Pagehttp://alturl.com/aehpxClub’s Facebook Pagehttp://alturl.com/f2bhbJim Pearson, WebmasterWest Kentucky Photography Club
