Harsh Changes Happen

Most everything we photograph is based on the beauty of wildlife and the natural land surrounding them.

However I also like to take black and white, the way I started in film, of our other environment. This is may be not so attractive. In fairness my tendency to use a harsher technique usually makes it look worse than it is.

This half demolished turn of the century wharf building, and the old small town movie theater, worked into an old Agfa 35mm film look I wanted.

If you haven’t done B&W seriously before I suggest you change your DSLR settings to monochrome while out working. Leave it that way and ‘peek’ at your shots until you get a feel of the shades and textures.
