Alamy POTM April: Monochrome


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

 

With a world full of saturated images we wanted to take a step back and appreciate the narrative and emotions that monochrome photographs can convey.   

 

Do you have images which showcase the beauty within black and white imagery? If you haven't been involved with Alamy Photo of the Month yet, the theme for April is #AlamyMonochrome, so why not join in?

 

Be inspired: https://www.alamy.com/search/lightbox/5598321.html

 

From portraiture to wildlife, we want to see it all. At the beginning of May we'll share our favourites with you and also our customers.

 

April 2024.JPG

 

Thanks,

Chantelle

Hi Chantelle,

 

Not true to the title but would you allow mono images with a small amount of spot colour in them as well or is it against the spirit of the theme?

 

No trouble if not. Just wondering before I start my collection.

Hi Allan, 

 

Ideally the images would need to be completely monochrome. :)

 

Thanks,
