Black & White

Returning to everyday life has certainly been a struggle after the Christmas holiday, particularly given prelims (aka mocks) are pending with the first one (Higher Maths) in less than a week. Four days of early starts, busy days at school and then more revision at home has been a killer and I’m feeling exhausted already - I’m just counting the days until prelims are over (I'm currently at 15 days to go…).

 

So with not much time on my hands (and a slight lack of inspiration for blog post topics - if you can share any ideas in the comments that would be much appreciated!) I thought I’d collate some of my favourite black and white photos from the last year or two, taken in a wide variety of locations including: Millport, La Gomera, Cambridge, Brittany, Great Rissington and (of course!) Glasgow.

I’m really pleased with all of the photos (the rocks and light shades are my personal favourites) and I particularly love how how the lack of colour really highlights the different tones and textures in the photos. 

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on my style - if you have any tips or constructive criticism on how to improve my technique that’d be fab!

 

And a little side note - good luck to everyone sitting their prelims in the next couple of weeks. I know it’s a really stressful time of year, but all the best and I hope you get what you’re aiming for.
