In honor of the September Challenge, today you need to make a wonderful self portrait, in black and white. Now, a good tip for a decent black and white is to target some nice contrast. So, find a nice background that will contrast with your face well. If you’re darker, go for a nice light background. If you’re pasty white like me, maybe seek out a darker background.

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge244“. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
