Here are more from a recent 2 day exploration of old and abandoned places. Midday harsh light and this subject matter often SCREAMS black and white to me. So I will shoot with that in mind. One day I hope to get an IR converted camera for such scenes.
Lovely set and great processing. You did a great job hiding the fact that the light was bad. If you feel like it I would like to get some idea of how you did your processing. Brian
Thank you Brian. With out going into details I like to approach bw conversion as one would shooting bw white film. I never just change the image from colour to grayscale but use either photoshops black and white layer adjustment or nik software silver fx pro with a colour filter.
When shooting BW film you can control the brightness of certain colours via using coloured filters. For example, a red filter will darken your blue skies dramatically while a green filter will lighten your greens. Used this concept when converting my digital colour images makes for a much better BW conversion IMHO. I then process to taste after that.
Always a good lesson for me to observe the perspective you take on your subjects and to know when to put something in front of the subject to add value to the image................A most enjoyable set Scott and I love the choice here on B&W for the presentation!
