That only printed white and black

This amazing typewriter from the 1920's still works perfectly. And it harkens to simpler day with one typeface and one color. One time at a STEM meeting at our house a young student grabbed his dad and said, "Look dad, it has the printer built in."

Assignment

Dear creative Framers, it is black and white photography week! It may seem like an ‘easy’ challenge: just take a photo and turn it in black and white...but black and white photography can be a bit more challenging than it seems at first. Color photography can be more forgiving than black and white photography. We see the world in color and it is often the main thing that we pay attention to in a photo. But the moment color is removed from a photo the textures, the use of light, the composition and the way that space is used is so much more prominent in a photo. Pay special attention to the tonal contrast, the range of light and dark areas, in your black and white photography. Since we do see in color, the tonal contrast will often be the first thing your viewers notice in a black and white photo. A high tonal contrast, with clear whites and true blacks, will make your photos pop out more. And a low contrast photo will have a more soft and dreamy feel to it. This week, find the light amidst the shadows!
