10 Sep 13.  During a three hour session on Saturday in which I was teaching creative editing of digital images, I was a bit surprised to see the amount of interest in B&W editing. While we didn't spend very much time on it as a class, I noticed several members of the group working with the B&W plug-in all on their own. Based on the number of companies I see coming out with tools for creating B&W images from color captures, I'm going to go out on a limb - not that I'd ever do something like that - and suggest that there is a Renaissance in B&W photography unlike anything we've seen since the era of Ansel Adams and his contemporaries. I'll admit that I'm looking more and more into that type of photography, but I'm leaning strongly towards the IR side. Now I just need to get the equipment that will allow me to so do. Until then I'll just have to convert color images to B&W ones. The shot for today started out as a color capture of a group of St John's Wort from which I cut out a single blossom, converted it to B&W, and then played around with it until I got just the look I wanted. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/640 sec @ f / 9.
