Some pictures can look good in color.... and also in black and white. I like this old schoolhouse in color, but I thought it might also do well in black and white.... so I turned it to black and white, added a bit more shadow and put a small bit of vignette around it. I like it.
This can work also if you want to make a picture look older.... or if you just like the black and white.
TIP- A picture with lights and darks in it may work well as a black and white picture. Experiment and see if you like it.... remember to make a copy of the picture first by pushing "file" at the top of the page and also "save a copy" so that you can save the original.
This was a foggy day at the cemetery. I liked this picture, but I think I like the black and white even better.
This path looks interesting... and we did enjoy walking it.... What about in black and white? Yes, this one works too.
TIP- Adding a light colored vignette to the outside of the black and white picture can add greatly to the changes. It also aims the focus of the viewer toward the path.
Another path with really tall trees and the older gentleman walking on the path. Seems like a good possibility for black and white.
Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a picture look so very different. I really like color pictures, but sometimes a black and white looks very interesting and can even pull out details it is easy to miss with color.
I love this picture in color... this was a special romantic hairstyle and lace dress for my daughter.
A Romantic Hairstyle and Lace Dress
The pale pink of the dress is so feminine and pretty. Still, I thought I would try black and white...
I do like both of them... for different reasons.
I hope you are enjoying photography..... and experimenting.... and learning as you have fun. :)
Thank you for visiting... I hope you have a great week!
