This assignment was interesting. I do not usually convert my photos to black and white, but I found that many of my photos work really well as grey scale images.
This photo was taken out in Bone, Idaho during a major thunderstorm. I found this old farm just off the road after a short hike. I think this photo looks pretty cool in black and white, but I really like the green grass.
This little road is very intriguing. The road goes a quarter mile out of the way to circle this tree. I think this photo looks great in black and white. I really like the way the green filter makes the grass and trees fade into the distance.
I really like the way this looks in black and white. The detail is transformed into a weird surreal style that I find very interesting. I was surprised again, because I really love the color in this panorama.
This photo is great in black and white. I haven’t really looked at black and white lightning photos before, but I like the way this turned out.
This is the Harvest Moon from City of Rocks in Malta, Idaho. This image is great in black and white. I did not think it would look better with out color. I really like the colors in the sky, but I think the BnW works better.
This is a cool tree in Moscow, Idaho. I like the way it feels in black and white. The texture in the leaves is interesting through the infrared filter.
These are my deadpan landscapes. I am no purist, and I wanted to capture the emotion and the sense of place present in each location. Sometimes this goal required me to deviate from the typical deadpan rule book and style guide. I really enjoyed shooting these photos, but it was a sacrifice converting them to black and white. I love the way the series turned out in black and white, but I will post the full color versions in another post if you wish to view them too. The colors in these skies are worth a look.
