Country Walking

Photography Tips

Black & white is a timeless medium that takes us back to a nostalgic yesteryear. Once upon a time we had to spend hours in smelly darkrooms processing film and fixing prints, though thankfully today we can simple flick a switch or change a menu setting and we have the power of mono at our fingertips. The Panasonic Lumix FZ200 features a Dynamic Monochrome creative control mode that can be further fine-tuned by increasing sharpness and contrast. It even has a sepia creative control mode, should you want to give your outdoor images a distinctly retro feel. Autumn and winter are fantastic times to shoot black & white, as the low sun and raking shadows add definition and texture to objects that would otherwise look quite dull and boring. Lone trees in the landscape, walkers in the distance, endless fields of waving grass… mono is a hugely versatile medium that’s perfect for almost every occasion. Want to give your walking shots more impact? Go black & white.
