stark and yet beautiful.
Thanks, one of those days when the light was just right.
you are nominated for the Sunshine Award !
Lectures au Coeur
Thank you – I am not good with awards but do appreciate your nomination and pleased that you take the time to visit and view my photography.
Yes, it is (a dead tree)…very observant, david! LOL. Sorry, just my cheeky sense of humour! Filters and Google in Arabic, ah well. I agree with your take about the Red filter; had you considered the Polarizer as well? Can produce rich skies and detail that convert well to B+W.
Sorry you are right – there is a brevity to some if my titles and answers come to think about it…….gets me into trouble sometimes !
I have only just started with the ‘Dark Side’ (Digital) that is. So in most cases conversion does not come into it, other than E6 process which I will scan and use P/S Cs5 Channel Mixer. Or print and then scan. Nothing like the smell of chemicals……….! I will take up Wet Plate 4×5 when I go back home and can buy the materials. A real Luddite then..
I agree polariser filters are good for Colour & B&W; very dramatic with a red or orange combine on B&W film.
Google humm………………. don’t get me started on that one again.
Oh, David, I hadn’t realised you are a wet darkroom guy! ;O) What I meant by “conversion to B+W”: now that you are using digital, this would be done in whatever image editing program you use. But, I guess, you don’t really do that, for the moment….something to look forward to! :O)
That could be a matter of opinion: I am also a radar engineer and anything in the way of digital test equipment is now the bane of my life (all menus and sub-menus)
But we are trying (very trying ) I am using digital due lack of chemicals for colour here in Oman; B&W I mix myself from raw ingredients,
I appreciate what you are saying, David! I also used to be a wet darkroom kinda gal, many moons ago; I don’t miss it. For me, the digital darkroom makes it very easy now to be highly creative and experimental, you just have to look at my posts. I’m just sorry your work has had a negative effect on your thinking regarding photography. Openness is the key to ‘seeing’. But, I do appreciate your innovativeness re the chemicals you use for your photography. Best of good wishes to you, :O)
Thank you – we are getting there !
To be honest I think it is more an age thing and a comfort for what I know. But you are right, I need an open mind and as you put it – experiment.
You have some very inspiring work on your site I really liked the ‘Autumn’s breath renewed’ series for instance.
Very good sense of atmosphere.
You give these old bones new life. Well done.
Thanks – it was one of those times when I knew exactly how I wanted the image to look as a finished print. The old tree was saying “Take my picture….”
Nice! I like the sky, goes well with the bright tree limbs.
Thanks – Red filter.
Well, that explains that. Works very well.
Thanks, I have looked at a lot of Early Ansel mountain views and he used a Minus Blue filter (yellow/green) which works well but for the almost black look nothing beats Red due the high blue content. I have some old Ilford matt paper that gives almost a satiny dense black (looks great with this type of image. Very little left though)
