Black and White and Snow
If there is any subject matter that more naturally fits with black and white photography it’s snow. Snow is the best catalyst for use in black and white because it makes it real easy to acquire the two most essential elements to any good black and white photo, an absolute black and an absolute white point.
Both of these images go back to a point I talked about earlier this week about using a long lens with your landscape work. Both images were captured with D5 and 200-400 VR. The story wasn’t about the whole scene in front of me but rather the small sections here and there. The light coming over the hills or the loan Bison by the tree. Small parts that make up a larger whole and when converted to B&W tell a story.
