The Bear Bulletin Vol. 4

This is part of an ongoing series in which I round up a week’s worth of bear photos along with some thoughts on my progress as an amateur photographer.  You can find previous volumes of The Bear Bulletin here.

This week’s Bear Bulletin turned into a study of black and white photos.  The bears were being intensely adorable as they stared out the window in our bedroom, which meant that I shot directly into the sun for most of the photos.  I loved the silhouettes I captured so after playing around in Lightroom for a while and realizing that I wasn’t going to get what I needed with color, I finally opted for black and white.

How do you decide when a photo should be in black and white versus in color?


DSCF0344Beginning this week, there will be a new segment in which Darrell writes about the bears’ behavior and snuggle status, among other things.

Bear snuggles are up 2.75 on a promise of tasty food.  While Michelle was out of town for NY fashion week, the bears stole and ate part of a carrot out of a casserole dish on the stove, and I cleaned it up the next day when it didn’t agree with Misty Bear’s stomach. That’s the Bear Report, TM, INC, MD.
