Black and White

Technical: Nikon D90, 1/80 sec, f4.5, focal length 18

Black and white has almost become a lost art among digital photographers. It’s an afterthought many times. The striking thing in this image is the deep rich shadow of the bushes which frame Jeffrey’s head. Shades of gray tend to look washed out. You need some richness to the shadows to make a good BxW. As I’ve said before, I think in color now. It’s another world to be thinking in BxW. It would be a good lesson to pursue. Don’t think of it as a way to salvage an image. Look for those contrasts and shadows. You’re still shooting in color and you get BxW too!
