I’ve been wanting to try the black and white with an item in color thing like Kevin did here. Wrigley was playing with his tug toy and I was able to get up super close with the wide angle lens. I just let it sit on the ground and I pressed the shutter release. Because the camera was on the ground and I was using the wide angle lens, I think the picture makes it look like the camera was farther away from Wrigley than it actually was.

Wrigley is a little blurry because he was moving while the picture was being taken, but somehow the toy remained still enough for me to get the picture.

Then I looked up tutorials on how to get the picture in black and white, but only expose the color in the areas I chose. When I finally found a tutorial, it turned out pretty straightforward, but my hands aren’t that steady so if you look really close at the picture, you can see that I got some of the rug in color as well. But with the small picture, it looks right.

    I think the black and white totally makes up for any blurriness, and the effect is cool.
