It’s really been a joy to participate in the Lens-Artists Photo Challenges over time. I have “met” so many interesting bloggers and “traveled” to so many fascinating places. And I’ve learned something about technique and artistry along the way. This week, the guest host is Anne Sandler. Her header image took my breath away, and then she totally schooled me on processing black and white photographs!Visit her post HERE.
I am less than a novice when it comes to processing. I use the very rudimentary tools that came with my camera. I’ve never even used Photoshop. The texture and tone and clarity that Anne achieves is truly stunning. What I know about Black and White is that I like it for portraits and for “art”. It’s not much, but it’s a start.
My favorite is your second image…the leaves and hands – nice composition
Thank you! I appreciate your visit.
Great photos ,you captured the emotions as well.I can see so much happiness in these photos.
Thanks! This was a very special photo shoot for my son’s wedding. Still so much happiness…I’m helping them move into a house this weekend. 🙂
Priscilla, thanks for taking on this challenge! Your black and white portraits are simply beautiful. And on your final picture, (I think it’s an elevated train track?) the lines and textures are accented in the absence of color. Well done!
Thanks, Anne! You really have elevated your processing to a high art. Very impressed!
I’m in the same place as you, as I only have a couple free editing apps and usually, unless playing around, do very little to edit. I really like the photos of your son and his wife.
Thanks, Janet! Even without editing, they are a spectacular couple. ❤
Nice use of black & white in portraiture.
I ha e tried photoshop a few times and have two people that offer me free lessons whenever I want / and I still cannot get into it! So
Basic editing is for me too!
And your photos here are wonderful – filled with that charm from the couple and the closing photo with the string lines seemed to be like “love anchored in”
Oh, I like that interpretation of the gallery! Thanks!
Terrific post Priscilla. I’m a big fan of B&W for portraits and your images show the reasons perfectly
Thanks, Tina! It does even out skin tones nicely. 🙂
Great choices. Beautiful!
