For the B part of the photography theme challenge, I chose to shoot bare feet.
As mundane as feet may be and possibly overlooked since we see them every second and minute of the day, they make beautiful subject to photograph because no two feet are the same and a mundane object can be made interesting with specific camera settings.
Every pair of feet tells a story about its’ owner. An excerpt of a previous post of mine below:
Feet! Normal human features that we see every day.
Yet, the feet are the beautiful piece of artwork from the Master craftsman Himself.
They take us on our lifetimes journey’s literally and physically
As we leave our imprints all over the sands of time in pursuance of our dreams.

The image is in a monochrome setting under the SCN mode. Monochrome setting converts the image directly to black and white.
The SCN mode stands for the scene or special mode. To get to your monochrome setting, on the dial button of your digital camera, turn the button to SCN. When you choose this mode, you can change the settings by highlighting an option with the multi-controller and pressing set.
The first setting you see in the scene mood would say Standard setting that Canon calls the ambience setting. The second setting which you can change in some of the modes says Default setting. It gives you a list of natural colors under specific types of lighting to choose from.
If you are a new/amateur photographer, the SCN modes help you to grow familiar with the settings and the feel of your camera. With practice you gain more control, become more adventurous with your creativity and explore other modes and settings in the Creative Zone.
