Be afraid

OK, not really. But since it is getting near the Halloween season, who can’t resist some creepy graveyard photos? Well, they may not be too creepy but they fit the mood. I actually took these photos a year ago on this day along with about a gazillion other subjects. I certainly was on a roll that day, unlike this year where I shot squat today. I never did anything with these shots so I thought I would let them out for all the world to see.

    • Thanks. Processing B&W takes a little more effort than color, in my opinion. Since you don’t have the separation of color, items with similar tones can blend together. Shots with contrasty light, which emphasizes texture, lend themselves well to B&W. Using color filters during processing will separate similar tone but different color items. For instance, using a green filter effect during processing will lighten grass and foliage and perhaps make an old barn stand out better.from the trees. Also, as in the old darkroom, dodging and burning help regulate the shadows and highlighlights in specific areas.
