Last month I gave you a taste of black & white and now I’m back again with another set of black and white photos. This group starts in February 2010 (that’s the snowy shot) and ends in August 2012.
There’s no particular rhyme or reason to why these particular photos are black & white. I take a photo in color, then upload (or is it download?) it onto my computer and start fiddling around. Should I enhance it. Try it in sepia? Black & white? Crop? All those considerations, and more, come to mind.
Some photos, once they are on the computer and enlarged, are sent immediately to the trash. It’s not rare for me to take 75-100 shots on a walk and trashed all but 10-12.
With trifocals and glasses that automatically darken in the sun, I sometimes just have to point and shoot, hoping that I’ll get a decent picture.
