The beauty of black and white

I recently read Andrew Gibson’s ebook on The Magic of Black and White and got inspired to work on a few images of my own this week. I don’t do too many black and white conversions with my photos, but with some images it really creates a beautiful impact. Andrew’s ebook is a very good read and he gives his straight forward approach to black and white conversion and split toning images. Split toning is something new to me as I usually only add color to my black and white images with Photoshop’s color filters. I like the results of the split toning methods he shows in this ebook.

I’m off for a couple of weeks on my trip to Mindanao and hope to write a couple of posts along the way. That will of course be dependent on what my internet access will be like while there. More to come from the road.
