I have always been drawn to black and white photography.

I would love to see some of your black and white photos!
You'd have to come east for a week's visit to see all mine - and most are still negatives :whistling2:

I just developed a computer glitch - graphic's card PCIe slot just went south. No more dual screen. Sure the onboard VGA still works, but editing on single screen is a PITA. And no, my lappy is not powerful enough to run these editing progs.

Cricket,

Have you ever played with B&W infrared photog? I used to do quite a bit when I was developing my own film.

I just researched digital infrared. Almost tempted to have my d-40 converted to infrared. Costs about $275. Now the camera itself can be converted OR a dark dark dark red filter that you can't see through.

It's a fun and dynamic medium to play with.

What is the mess in the foreground of urban sprawl PP. Very well composed "dark" image of urban sprawl!
Steve, thanks.. its actually river rock along a beautiful harbor. In retrospect, the image would have been a clearer juxtiposition of natural beauty and the urban sprawl had I composed with more of the water showing.

Here is another shot showing this building in the background. As a side note, the subject boat is named "Motion Granted" which I thought was ingenious and lends to mind if the legal profession paid for it or if it was won it in a divorce.

I don't do too many conversions to B/W but I notice that faces stand out better without so many colors to distract.
You can even tell his eyes are blue.

I guess cutting my photo eye tooth on B&W, I see more shapes and proportions than color interplay when I look at landscapes. What I see is better translated by B&W. And thus I love the winter as the snow provides a ready made white canvas. And the feeling of bleak cold easier to portray.

I am not going back into my archives to pick stuff but am going to use these threads to display the day's offerings. Excuse that each one is not a gem, but merely the recent attempts. So feel free to offer any constructive criticism.



These taken yesterday and "developed" today. Both within 2 miles from home.

Yup, I've especially noticed Birch trees and stalks.
