02 Dec 14. Today we return to the Tumwater Canyon image I shard last week for three days. This time it is another B&W approach, but of the basest kind being nothing more than a color image that has been desaturated. This is the quickest and easiest way to make a B&W image from a color image in that all that is necessary is to slide the saturation slider all the way to the left (assuming that the slider being employed has the desaturation value on the left). It isn't going to make for a very exciting image, but it will be a monochrome image in black and white. Put these two side by side and compare them. By the time we are done with this exercise I'm betting this will be at the bottom of your ranking. I have left the image as I shot it, but you could crop off about 20% of the right hand side of this shot to make a better photo. If you elect to do so remember to do the same cropping for each of them so that you are comparing the same photo in each instance. I'll provide 3 more in the next 3 weeks to give you a set of 5 to compare. Then you can do some playing over the Christmas break. As before, Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 320; 1/500 sec @ f / 8.
