I think I’m Turning Black and White


I was out today in the frozen Cairngorms today and took some photos in black and white and in colour. I’m beginning to enjoy the black and white more, some how you see more.  I’m just a beginner at this so any advice would be gratefully received.

Love the light in this one.

Some of these were really easy to take apart from the fact that you have to get there and avoid freezing to death.

Sometimes it’s observing the small things that makes all the difference.

  1. The black and white shot looks way more dramatic and atmospheric. Saying that i am a bit of a lover of black and white photography myself.

  2. Makes a great change to see some black & white photos. Of course, if I want to do black & white, I have to plan well in advance, finish the colour film first and then load a black & white one. I then have to find enough photos to use up the black & white film. Haven’t used one for ages!

  3. Not sure if you’re using digital John, but a tip I once got was to take the photo in colour and change it to black and white on the computer. That way you have both the colour and B&W. A basic (free) piece of software like Picassa would do the job perfectly, and not difficult to use. Just a wee thought. Craigie
