BW


I've been doing more black and white conversions lately. I use to feel that turning digital color images into black and white was a bit of affectation. Coming from a strong traditional black and white printing background, I had the attitude that if you want it black and white shoot it with black and white film. Of course, it has become cost prohibitive since black and white development and printing is becoming a rarefied art and the production costs are going through the roof. I'm still perfecting my technique, but have been satisfied with the results so far.

Check out this US Carbon Footprint Map, an interactive United States Carbon Footprint Map, illustrating Greenest States to Cities. This site has all sorts of stats on individual State & City energy consumptions, demographics and more down to your local US City level...

I used to not like doing B & W conversions as I felt it didn't show as well as when I shot in B & W. But, I've tried it again recently and have noticed that the conversions have become much better. This is great because of the flexibility I now have to shoot color & convert.

On another note, please keep up the great blog. Studying your composition has helped me become a better photographer. Thanks.
