The brand new contest location for the Focal Press Monthly Photography Contest is now open!
The theme for the July contest is “BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY” sponsored by Black & White Photography Field Guide by Michael Freeman.
The popularity of black and white photography has never really waned, but with the rise and accessibility of post-production software making black and white photographs easier to achieve, the interest in this popular and challenging area has exploded. This month we are saluting photography’s roots with the theme black & white photography, sponsored by Michael Freeman’s Black and White Photography Field Guide.
