Great new main thread, and great first post.
I'll watch this thread closely! Only monochrome pics allowed.
thank you.. I'm still figuring out how and where I should be posting ..
There is an informative thread on how to upload photos, plus the Netiquette thread with additional info.
In the second post of the Netiquette there is a collection of nearly all dedicated threads. Just have a look.
Please Read First: Netiquette for the photo section (the Déjà vu thread)

how to take these monochrome pics???

shooting of a different kind..
there is no provision to take monochrome photos in Camera app of one plus.
here is a general idea I feel well help you take better monochrome pics.
Monochrome essentially means black and white, but tones of sepia have also been used in monochrome shots.
___Selecting monochrome frames___
Usually scenarios where the 'drama' takes centre stage than vibrant colors,
eg. human expressions, the silhouette of a man, architecture, heavy machinery, shadow plays.
___Things to avoid___
Cluttered frames, too many elements in one shot, usual landscapes,
eg. Animal farm, parkeets, macro shots.
p.s: there is no rule in photography as to what looks best, this is only my viewpoint. Some people can rock these shots in monochrome too.
___Things to consider___
Framing the shot in black so that you subject is enhanced in the white areas. Try to preferably make more than 2/3rd of your frame in black.
Play of lights. use shadows and shades of white to give 'colour' to your subject. In post processing decrease mid and low tones in areas selectively to avoid distracting elements.
Well thats all I can think of now. Hope this helps.
As for your specific question. Use any black and white filter . Snapseed is a good place to start.
Great post, thank you very much.
hello, as already mentioned there is no monochrome feature in the camera functions. I use an app called Photo Editor. it's a very good and user friendly app.
As for subjects and composition.
I have basically trained myself to see in monochrome, by this I mean I can visualize things in Black and White. There are certain subjects that really lend themselves to Black and White Photography. it can really change the entire mood , feel and add drama to certain subjects that in colour just wouldn't be the same.
I use Ansel Adams Zone system which really helps with exposure.
It also depends on what style of Photography you are interested in.
Street Photography is predominantly in Black and White as it adds drama and feeling to the subject.
don't be afraid to experiment with your shots , and don't forget sometimes less is more.. the KISS principal..
