hey guys ive always wanted to make one of these black and whites but didnt really know how to go about doing it. well any way i went out and took shot of a flower and just started messin around with it with gimp. so here we are 3 hours later lol. so... i guess i achieved what i was looking for... give or take a little.... shot at 1/640 f5.6 and ISO800 yes i know those are rediculous. i just went out real quick and took kinda a snap shot and didnt really even think about my settings.
