This photo is probably my most cherished black and white photo of all!
It is of my daughters Julia and Lissy– way back when they rarely ever fought!
How I miss those days!
When photographing children, black and white is still my favorite medium.
All of these pictures were shot in film– and scanned.
But I do continue to learn more and more about black and white conversion in digital photography. And I’m really beginning to see how well it works. I was a skeptic for awhile.
Sometimes I think it would be great to just do B&W … there are many professionals out there that do just that!
But then I realize that as much as I love it… there are so many times when color is just so stunning and appropriate.
But take a photo like this… color really just doesn’t seem to matter. The black & white captures the innocence in a such a sweet and beautiful way.
So as I have begun photographing others more with my digital camera, I am always on the lookout for that photo that would be just right for black and white.
Here are some basic black & white conversions that were done in photoshop.
Here’s my favorite conversion so far!….
There are so many resource and tutorials on the internet.
Of course you could just book a with me this fall and let me take care of it for you
