January | Black & White Photo Challenge (Week 1) ♥

The first week of my black and white photo challenge for January has come to an end. This is such a fun project for me. I love converting my images to black and white when editing, it gives a different air to the captures and I love how peaceful everything looks in black and white. 

These pictures were captured on my Nikon D3200 in natural light and on my Samsung Galaxy A4 in natural light also. Sadly, as the light isn't the best here in Ireland during January and I'm battling with light, a couple of the images came out grainy but I guess that gives them character, nothing is perfect after all.

 My favourite image from the week is from day 5 - the clouds and my sons pose have a 60s vibe for me and I just love it.

I'm already looking forward to the next seven days and am already dreaming of what scenes and emotions I can capture on camera.

Daydream believer...

Oh snap!

 Curls for days...

 Teepee time, bunnies are mandatory of course.

 Everything is a phone to this boy.

 Playing with sunlight.

 Smiley, happy people.


  1. Such lovely photos I've not done any in black and white for ages. I especially love ur teepee photo.

  2. Oh this is such a great idea. I'm trying to work out what to do photography/photo wise on the blog and I do think black and white would be a great idea.

  3. These are such lovely pictures Fiona, well done you. I love the look of black & white pictures, there is always something that stands out about them.

  4. What lovely photos, I don't shoot much in black and white and you are inspiring me to give it a try. I too really like the one with the cloud Pjs (they are fab!). x

  5. Oh these are beautiful!!! My favourites are the bubble bath, the cloud PJs and the one of you - so stunning!! I don't often turn things to black and white when I edit, I should try it more! xx

  6. Oh Fi, these photos are just gorgeous! He is such a little darling, I love his hair - I fear I have to trim Pickles now that he has started school. The light here hasn't been great either. I do love B&W photos. Kaz x

  7. I love your photo challenge. My favorites is 1, 2 and 5 he has the perfect bone structure for black and white photos. What is your next challenge again? All I remember is the rainbow challenge lol.

  8. What a great way to show off your photos. I agree that black and white photos do change how you look at them x

  9. lovely photos Fiona. I would love to be a great photographer but my setting on my camera is still on auto. I must learn how to use it properly
