All things natural in black and white
I run into situations where I might not have a second camera loaded with Black & White film. In these situations I take this color first, then convert approach. It works, but there's no real substitute for a
true Black and White negative. I'll photograph everything in color first, then convert the ones I feel would look good in Black and White after when processing images. With newer in camera Black and
White options, I can actually photograph a color image, then switch to Black and White mode for a second picture. These select images look fine at this small size and would have to be seen much
larger to really appreciate the textures and details. Some of these were originally photographed on color reversal film. The digital images were photographed with several different consumer and
professional bodies.
