Today is day 15 of my 365 photography challenge and thank you for joining me. For today's blog I decided to continue playing with selective colouring. This is a fun way to make your photos both fun and interesting for the viewer. To make these prints I simply mounted my DSLR camera onto my tripod. Using the timer setting on my Nikon camera I snapped a couple of images where I varied my hand placement and grip. To increase the contrast between my hand and the background I used a piece of black Bristol board. Once I was satisfied with the images I used Lightroom and Silver Effect Pro 2 to convert the images into black and white prints. Anyone interested in making stunning black and white prints I would strongly recommend downloading Silver Effects Pro 2 by clicking here. I then chose the original image and the newly created black and white print and imported them both into Photoshop CC as layers. Using my painting brush I simply reintroduced the original colours of the chalk/coloured pencils back into the photo. I am delighted with how they turned out and more importantly I am now thinking about other creative ways of using selective colouring for my photography challenge.

For those of you interested in taking your photography skills to the next level come join me and start your own photography challenge. Some of you may be concerned that this is too big of an obligation for you. If so, change it up a little and turn it into a 52 Week Photography Challenge. With a 52 Photography challenge you are simply committing to making at least one photo each week for the next 52 weeks. Don't forget to share your experience with us on FB where I have created a group for us to share our images and encourage each other. Until tomorrow have fun and continue shooting!!
