Week 2: Black and White

Week 2: Black & WhiteWeek 2: Black & White

           For this week's theme, I kept it simple. I shot the above image using a LED continuous light held directly above the cat. I used a wide aperture to highlight the fur textures and whiskers on the cat. In post processing, I made the image B & W. To further enhance the image, I increased the clarity around the nose, eyes and upper mouth. I tweaked the shadows and blacks and added a blue undertone via split toning. Here's a before and after.
