The limited sunshine on this trip has gotten me thinking that perhaps I ought to (or need to!) shoot more monochrome. Accordingly, I read a cursory few tips on black-and-white photography on the interblag before heading out today and here are the results.
I liked black and white. It forces you to think differently, look for contrast and texture rather than colour and hue. Would I become a monochrome purist? Absolutely not – I like my golden hours too much – but I can certainly see the attraction. Will I keep converting from RAW on my tablet?* I’ll see what the results look like compared to Lightroom, but on a trip like this one I don’t have much other choice.
I’ve also got a B&W film on the go at the moment, so it will be interesting to see what comes of that!
*I used Photo Mate R2, which as far as I can tell is the only option at present.
