our interstate hike. i had been toying with the idea of joining in on the b&w photography project at the podcast for quite some time now, but never gotten around to it. while i was going through my pictures from the hike, i had a good 40+ that i liked and decided it was a good time to finally dabble with converting some to black and white. i've never really done black and white for the artistic element. mostly it's just been for poor quality or noisy photos with the occasional one for "emotional impact" on a scrapbook page. this was an eye-opening experience.
black and white photography tips at the
podcast and two of those really stood out to me. one is the idea that
you have to begin seeing the world in black and white. i think i am
very much color driven, so this will be something to really focus on.
the second tip that practically made my head spin was that overcast days
can be good for black and white photos. i am very much into lighting
in my photography. finding out that i can pursue interesting photos in
flat lighting is mind blowing. this could be the answer to my winter photography blues!
