“The ink is black…
… the page is white.”
I love color, but I think there are times when a black and white photograph can be more effective in conveying a certain moodiness or theme. This is a small collection of black and white images taken during a recent walk through Liuzhou’s Riverside Park. I purposely left out any captions or descriptions. I thought you might enjoy letting your imagination run and decide what you think is happening in each shot. You can leave your interpretation in the comments section and in a few days I’ll tell what was going on
20 Minutes In Monochrome II
20 Minutes In Monotone III
20 Minutes In Monotone IV
20 Minutes In Monotone V
I’ll talk more about black and white photo processing/conversion some time in the future. It isn’t very difficult to get good results but there are a few tricks that can help create rich inky blacks with a full palette of grays and that produce sharp, dramatic images. Peace!
