Here’s an article I came across this morning. It was timely with my exercise from yesterday.
I love the way a good black and white image can make you feel. I’ve been challenged in this digital age. These seem like good tips for making better black and white images.
Is this the best advice for those wanting to shoot in black and white? Are there other tips that should be considered?
Since it was such a gray day yesterday, I decided to push myself and shoot black and white. I changed the setting in my camera as opposed to shooting on color and then converting to black and white.
I found that I missed the old days of film, being in the darkroom, and the smell of the chemicals. I look forward to working some of the black and white images.
I do wonder and would love to get some feedback. Should you shoot with the camera set to black and white? Or should you shoot in color and convert to black and white? What is the best way to make the conversion from color images to black and white?
Here’s one of my favorite images from yesterday.
