When to go Black and White
Last week I talked about getting in close with your landscape images and going black and white in certain scenarios. I wanted to show what the opposite of that was like. Sometimes you see an image and you just know to convert it and then other times you don’t. Color is a big factor of knowing when to and when not to. If the color is more outstanding then anything else or if it gives it that extra little pop the odds are it’s better not to change.
Here’s the link to last weeks post in which I talked about going in tight and converting. Now both images were taken with the D5 and 70-200 VRII and while I like both, they are both unique. One works one way, one works another way. Seeing the differences and knowing which results are better come from practice and experience and you only get those by shooting.
