The Bethadilly 52 Week 9 – Black + White

week 9 of the bethadilly 52 has us challenging ourselves to take a really good photo for a black and white edit.  when i took this image of my daughter’s toes sticking out from beneath her high chair, i knew it had the potential to be a really good black and white photo because of the contrast between dark and light.  i had a lot of light entering in from camera right, allowing her little toes to peek into the light.  i also had a lot of shadows within the frame as well, which meant that my contrast from dark to light was strong enough to create both shallow shadows on her legs and deep shadows inside of the highchair.  i loved the black and white edit on this image because it allowed me to deepen the shadows further around her thigh area which, in comparison, showcased her toes in the light.  the contrast between black and white also offers the photo a sense of balance that is visually pleasing.
