For anyone wanting to improve their ability to see, or previsualize, in B&W before taking an image, or converting one, this is a very good resource: http://eileenrafferty.com/portfolio_page/seeing-in-black-and-white/
One of my favorite summer whites!Thanks for sharing. Had a quick look and will definitely watch the entire content. A bit too much Gruner Veltliner imbibed at the moment to capture my full attention. I would like to improve my skill level for this. My B&W tones suck for the most part.
Gary, I enjoy your comments as much as I enjoy your pictures. You are indeed a master at fine B&W work. Just watched a short video about John Sexton, one of Ansel's assistants, who said the best way to enjoy a picture is to hold it, unframed, in your hands, in good light, while drinking a good glass of wine!I watched about 1/2 of the video, yes after having a glass or two of wine.
Pretty basic stuff, but if you do not know the basics of tonality and black and white it would at least open your eyes to think about it. I shot black and white for years, so nothing was new here. Still, pretty nicely done and worth the time, especially if black and white is somewhat new to your art making.
