Black and White

I love how black and white often creates an entirely different reality
of any particular subject.

I was going through some old film files and scanned these from 1993. This is the Minnesota History Center building, brand new when I went to get these and not even fully operational yet. Some of these are T-Max 100 and some are Ilford FP4 Plus. All were shot with a Canon T90 with various lenses.

I scanned these at very low res for film, 600 dpi. That probably accounts for the jpeggy look.

The top ones are most attractive with their horizontal and vertical lines.

Great shots! I like the one with the wooden chair best!

It seems that from time to time, there is a resurgence of interest in black and white photography on the social networking sites, usually brought on by a participant who has just started a new basic photography class, or an amateur who has just discovered that black and white is the only "real" photography, and by churning out one desaturated digital color image after another, they have become "artistes." Having recently encountered this phenomenon elsewhere, and since I am unwilling to get involved there because contrary opinions are rarely tolerated amongst the slavering over the "gorgeous tones and textures" by the pathetically uninitiated, I hereby offer this example of a black and white conversion in Photoshop.

Let the slavering begin.

I made a print of this one and it turned out so well I think I'll put it in a frame and see if I can sell it.

Tombstone Stagecoach B/W 2

{Photography.47.307}: annie {oceanannie} Sat, 25 Feb 2012 16:47:06 EST (5 lines)

I should think a tourist would be delighted with that!  Better than
anything they could take probably.  If that's a stage coach, those are
heavier horses than would be normal, considering the speed at which
the coaches usually travelled. Does that coach take tourists around
for rides?

{Photography.47.308}: TJ {tj2} Sat, 25 Feb 2012 17:45:03 EST (3 lines)

Yes. We rode one on our first visit to Tombstone. It's about a twenty
minute tour of the historic district. There are several companies
doing it..

{Photography.47.309}: TJ {tj2} Sat, 25 Feb 2012 17:46:25 EST (1 line)

Oh, and the speed is very slow. You could easily walk alongside.

ooo. such textures

That's what I love about b&w. When you remove the colors, your brain
has to spend more time seeing texture, contrast, shadow and light.

I love the tree branches of winter!

{Photography.47.317}: Glen Marks {wotan} Fri, 27 Feb 2015 15:33:12 EST (4 lines)

- Which is probably the reason why I work exclusively in black and
white... to highlight that contrast.
