Black and white

Recommended Posts

I took this pic last month and found this to be a good pic just black and white. The old car and setting gives it the look of the 50's yet it was taken Sept 2007.

That would look cool if the flower itself was the only thing that had color. My son has made a few pics where just the subject is color and the rest is black and white and they look pretty cool.

I'm using Microsoft picture it, Premuim 10.

But most picture programs have black and white, the pics I posted is actually changed to Antique. Grey scale works as also in the colors setting move the slider till all color is removed. Also some camera's have a black and white setting, so the pic can be taken in black and white.

LOL

They look good though, so you don't have to stop.

As far as loosing a bit of zaz, it's OK, I lose a bit also, but it keeps the pics original safe, instead of stolen. LOL

Here's another one I have

Excellent B2K, the old tractor helps give it that old picture type, but the clarity is beyond a camera of that era. I think that's what makes Black and White pictures so awesome.

Here is my B&W submission. Again with a subject more suited to the format. Taken during the Canadian National Exhibition at Ontario Place in Toronto. Sept. 2007.

There's a few good ways to switch to black and white with better results than just desaturating the image. I'll post a few tutorials when I get the chance.
