Thinking In Black And White

I regularly shoot in color and my images are always in the RAW format. That said however, if the resulting photograph has a chance of looking good in black and white, NIK Silver Effects Pro is trotted out to process it. The image above is a good example of what I mean.

It started out as a decent image of a down and out guy scratching lottery tickets in front of a real estate office. The light was good but the ghastly purple color of the office window design was horrible. Changing the image to monochrome was a revelation! All of a sudden the window’s purple tinted squares became lovely shades of gray and the figure’s rumpled raincoat was set off well by the widow’w short straight lines.

I'd love to hear from you
