Weekend assignment July 14, 2006: Black and white

Black and white photos appeal to people for many different reasons. For some, it is the simplicity and elegance that black and white can lend to a photo. For others, the classic, timeless look. But whatever the reason, black and white is definitely the right treatment for many photographs. Have a look at the black and white conversion techniques I discussed this week and try your hand at it. Notice how different techniques and settings yield very different images. Without the assistance (or distraction) of color, you’ll notice that your photos take on a completely different feel. When you’ve got something you like, share it with the rest of us in the Photodoto discussion group. And please share what conversion technique you used.
