"Obsidian" by Rebecca (joyfullivinggirl)
I love this black and white image Rebecca shared as part of her Project 2012 inspiration challenge for January's "Fresh" assignment. Black and white images are far trickier than they might seem. The really good ones have a beautiful range of shade and light from brighter whites to deeper blacks just like you see here. Rebecca's image also captures gorgeous texture: the cuffs of the sweater, the broken shell, the spotted surface. That texture translated just perfectly to the black and white.
Great job, Rebecca! Thanks for sharing this with us and I'm looking forward to what you're capturing next!
