Channeling Ansel

"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art." Ansel Adams

As I sat at the computer editing photos last night, I decided to start trying some of my photos in black and white. While adjusting them in Photoshop, I couldn't help but think of some of the Ansel Adams images I had seen over time.


Here are four images that I converted to black and white and selected to post (I have a few more that I will post later). All of these have color photos to match that I will also post some other time.

  3. Good stuff Aaron! Easy to see you have fell prey to the Spirit of the Wichitas! Happy to see you chose to do a B&W post! Particulary liked the shot of the cedar plantings (parallel forest). Now over a Hundred years old, it was planted in the spring of 1912. Happy to say I wasn't there!

  4. I like what you are doing with the B&W!

    Interesting geometry in the second photo and tThe last two photos have that IR look to them.

    I really like the first photo, great lighting and the reflection in the pond is perfect. Definitely a framable picture this one!

  5. I really like the top shot a lot. The other three are nice too but if it were me, I think I would have dropped the highlights out of them just a touch. Like Paul said, they seem to have an IR look to them.

  6. These are great! I like the composition on these photos. If you love shooting b/w, you may have to look into the big stopper filter.
