So this weekend I’ll be posting some of the best black and white tuts and tips I’ve seen recently as well as a few amazing black and white photographers and of course links to their sites. I will also post a few of my own black and whites. This should be fun!
I absolutely love Black and White Photography. The depth and way it tells a story just reaches inside of me.
This photo was taken on a black and white film camera and is amazing.
I love this blog because Mary has shared all kinds of photography projects and each one tells a story. Great job!
On every digital camera you have the option to shoot in black and white or in color. There are also some photographers that tell you when photographing do not use the black and white option but rather convert your colored photos into black and white because the digital age has given us even more freedom to the quality of black and white.
My personal opinion is it’s tough to say. I would rather break out my black and white film camera and shoot that way. Unfortunately I do not have a dark room and find it hard to release my artistic vision to a photo lab.
I have used my camera in black and white mode as well as color conversion to black and white. I find shooting nature a preference to use the camera’s mode, shooting portraits it is much easier to use color and convert using plugins on paint shop pro or Photoshop much much easier.
Here are a few of my photos.
