Monday Mono Trees

Monday Mono Trees

I have made it a habit over the last few weeks to post some mono images on a monday, and I decided to keep with that this week, but I may then take a break as I really struggled with finding photos that I thought would work well in mono this week, and although I am happy with a couple of these images not so sure about the others, but before I discuss that any further let me share the first one, taken in the Oak Grove Cemetery here in New Bedford

Now I don't think all photos can work in Mono, and perhaps trees not so much, but in the first shot being in a cemetery I think it worked fairly well

Another subject that works well in Mono is old or decayed building such as this one of Whites Factory an abandoned building in Acushnet MA

Now some may think that doing a B&W edit is easy just one click on a filter, and on some phone apps that may be the case, but when doing in Lightroom and Photoshop its a bit more complicated than that, I first do a basic edit, some adjustments of light and shadows and often bring out the colors a bit more before converting it to a Mono Image, so in most cases a mono edit for me is more time consuming than a color edit.

Now this next photo is one I keep bouncing back and forth between liking and hating

It was taken in the cemetery again

And for the next shot I am by the Pier here in New Bedford, have shared many shots of the pier and the tree in color, but I quite liked the mood mono gave to this next shot

And finishing off with a shot in Buttonwood Park, it was a nice sunrise this morning and I have edited some shots for a color post, but this tree always catches my eyes, it was bare pretty much all year but still there and standing, and I thought this mono edit actually adds a bit of mystery or moodiness to it

And that’s all folks

That's weird, I thought I had already commented here ... I'm very sure that I have 😏

Anyway, especially when the trees have lost all or most of their leaves in this time of the year, I think they look great in mono, especially with dark and moody clouds or beside old ruins I love such shots like yours in black & white - second photo with the Whites Factory is my favourite today 😀


!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

That is strange I thought you had as well
The Whites factory seems ot be the most popular one,
and yes I think bare trees work especially well in MOno

My favourite little apple tree should be leaf less by now too - maybe I'll visit it next weekend 😀

Yep, but soon all will be leafless and the gray season will begin ... well, here it will hopefully be more white than gray 😉

Moody! I love them and they really fill the card well in mono! You are such a great judge of what will work and what won't.

The first gets my vote!

Thanks for your support always so kind the first was my favorite also

Nice shoot. I'm a big fan of monochrome and often see stuff and my first thought will be ahhhh that'd work in B&W and snap snap snap away.

Thanks, and yes I am the same way, but I must admit till I tried one I had not really considered doing mono for trees

they have great texture that works well in monochrome as well as a presence against a sky backdrop. Love the mono mood :)

Thanks again and have a great day

The first picture looks like it came straight out of a horror book, I love it.

Not all trees work in mono, but you've found a bunch that certainly do. The cemetery particularly so!

Thanks, that was the one I had done in Mono before and really like which inspired me to do a mono tree post

Oooh nice perspective ❤️ Amazing atmosphere! Any moments are magician in your photographs.
Always great work my dear sweet friend @tattoodjay. God bless you long.

Thanks you are always so kind and I do appreciate your support

Great photos! I love the monochromatic pics, you can play with the light and shadows that gives more deepness to the image.
Beautiful post.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Those are wonderful photography and look like vintage area. I use some apps for editing but not Lightroom or photoshop. Is those apps better then other apps like Snapseed. You for wonderful results.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Nice shoots @tattodjay.
I really appreciate also the information about camera settings below each photo

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Super nice photos @tattoodjay 👏👏👏

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Mono Monday... a cool idea.
Mono photos don't have variety of colors, but how much feelings are into them
The photo with an old broken tree made me sad. I remembered that we have a lot of such trees just in the center of our city now...Dead or killed trees are a big tragedy especially when people do it without any essential reasons.

Thanks for the visit
I find mono brings our focus more in the details and textures
Yes a dead tree is so sad
