Cruel Intentions
Monochrome, macro, nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

One person’s weed is another person’s flower. This one (a dried up thistle in the wild) just seems evil.

I snapped this photo on a recent hike thought the woods to find some autumn color. It wasn’t colorful, for sure, but I thought it was interesting – in gruesome kind of way.

Sugar and Spice
Child portrait photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice. That's what little girls are made of.

This is a portrait of one of our granddaughters.  We were blessed to have an opportunity to spend a little time with her and her parents recently.

Of course, whenever we have the pleasure of visits with any of the grandchildren, I usually try and grab a few photos. After this visit, as we were driving home, I told my wife I was disappointed that I wasn't able to get any good photos of our granddaughter.  When I downloaded the day's images to my computer I was delighted to find this gem.  This is the only decent image I captured of her on this visit, but it's a definite keeper.

You can get a better look at those big, beautiful eyes by clicking on the photo.

Brooding Virtue
Monochrome Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a white tulip. By converting it to a monochrome image, it becomes a moody collection of light and shadow, texture and form.

I’ve been working on tulip images that I shot a couple years ago. This was a nice macro shot of a white, tulip bloom. It was a nice image, in color, but I thought it became a much more interesting image in monochromatic form.

You can view more of the finer detail by clicking on the photo.

The Bright Dark of Night
Monochrome Cityscape photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

In the deep dark of night, the city waterway reflects lights of life. This is a view along the Riverwalk in downtown Milwaukee, WI.

This is an image I captured a couple of years ago. A photography friend from the Milwaukee area took me to some great spots for some night photography. I was looking through some of the shots I took that night but never got around to processing. I thought this one was worth a little effort.

I had posted another image from this taken the same night from this same area, in color, awhile back. This one, in monochrome tones, has become my favorite of the two.

This red rose evokes an entirely different feeling when presented in a monochrome tone.

This started as a color image and I spent a lot of time trying to get this just right. I like it better than the image I started with.

Caged Competitor
Sports Portrait photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The season may be over, but this is one baseball player who remains serious about his game.

This is one of my favorites from a recent “senior portrait” shoot. Baseball was an important part of this young man’s high school career so they wanted some photos of him in his uniform.

The basic idea for this shot (ball player looking through the fence) was brought to me by the subject’s parent who saw a similar shot on Pinterest and wanted us to try it. During the shoot, we made a quick trip to a nearby, small town ball field to grab a few shots. I believe the version she showed me was in color but, while I was working on it, I thought a gritty, monochrome style would best suit the players mood.

There are a lot of things that make this a favorite for me. First, the general mood of the shot. You can easily imagine a story behind this image. (In fact, several stories.)

I also like the detail of the ball, glove and uniform. Don’t miss other interesting touches…like the bruises on the player’s elbow (An element that adds to the story), the tufts of grass on the unkempt infield, the way the light poles and the wisps of clouds frame the photo. (I wish I would have thought to throw a bat on the field in the background.)

The one aspect I question… Is the fence too distracting? Of course, it’s important to this scene, but I think it is almost too symmetrical around the facial features. I didn’t try to get it that way, it’s just the stance he took. I think it might seem more natural if the fence didn’t intersect right on the bridge of the nose and chin. If it was just offset a little to one side or another it might seem more natural, less posed. Of course, now I might be just nit-picking. What do you think? (If it didn’t occur to you before I mentioned it, than it is just me the nit-picky perfectionist.)

Blooming in Black & White
Monochrome fireworks photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I love fireworks. The climbing rockets, bursting into bright, streaming displays of color and light are an irresistible enticement for my photographic efforts.

I decided to try something unusual with this one. The shape of the bursts reminded me of flowers blooming. Rather than emphasize the color, I removed all color to accentuate the shape.

I wasn’t sure I’d like it without the color, but the more I look at it, the more it appeals to me. I really like the firework’s reflection in the water.

Of Tulips Past    monochrome flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

These tulips have long past, but their memory lives on in digital form. Long live the tulips!

These tulips were two-toned in color – not your typical red or yellow. Ironically, I thought the unique, contrasting colors made them good candidates for a monochrome treatment.

To me, the detail in the petals are much more interesting in a higher contrast B&W. In fact, I think this would make an impressive, large print. May have to do that.
