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 photography. 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?
Beginning 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.
