You'd have to come east for a week's visit to see all mine - and most are still negatives :whistling2:I have always been drawn to black and white photography.
I would love to see some of your black and white photos!
I have not yet but it is on my list of things to learn!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.
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.What is the mess in the foreground of urban sprawl PP. Very well composed "dark" image of urban sprawl!
Yup, I've especially noticed Birch trees and stalks.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.
I love the B+W on that first image Cricket!
There is this amazing Peruvian group that always plays at the Rivercenter. That picture is of some of their instruments on the table. (I love pan flute music.)looks she channeled Zamphir's dream
(sorry, just blurting out what it made me feel )
