Club News – It’s Black & White Week 17 in the 52-Week Challenge 2022
WEEK 17 of 52-Week Photography Challenge
BLACK & WHITE WEEK
It is black & white week this week, and while in simple terms that might mean an image where all the colour has been removed, we want you to go further than this: Consider the contrasts between dark and light, look at how shadows fall, set out to create mood and atmosphere as you use the 256 shades of grey between true black and true white.
If you can turn your camera to black & white, then do so for this week. When you share and publish your images this week, tell us about the advantages of black & white photography.
Your challenge: Capture black & white images this week.
Remember to use the hashtags to make your photos easier to find on social media: #ViewfindersChallenge #ViewfindersChallengeWeek17
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock. And do please send in your images associated with these challenges. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Team Challenge at Club Night Wed 27 April 2022
A five-prop challenge takes place at Hedon Viewfinders meet up on Wednesday 27 April. We will split into teams and each will face the same five props to photograph. This is a creative challenge but a technical spanner will be thrown into the works as an additional random condition is added. As each team tackles each prop, they will be given one additional thing to consider as well!
The five table props will be a:
- Buddha statue,
- a stone bottle,
- an artist’s wooden mannequin,
- a polystyrene head,
- and crystal ducks.
The different random conditions that each team will face when considering their composition will be one of the following:
- make a silhouette,
- make a shadow,
- use a reflection,
- use additional colour lighting,
- or make black & white.
Knowing the props and the additional conditions you will have to meet will help you prepare for this fun, creative and technical challenge.
Team Challenge Night, Haven Arms, Havenside, 7pm on Wed 27 April 2022.
