    Gray Days can make some great pictures. Everywhere I looked around the house just begged to be photographed, especially in black and white.

    i agree, grey days are awesome for photography, i really like these images, especially the first two of the bed.

    I agree with sean, the images are a tad flat but with just a little tweaking in pshop i think they could really stand out. On the bottle It would be cool if you could read the label.

    cheers and thanks for sharing those!

    Thanks guys,

    Yeah, I have to say I've noticed that flatness as well. What types of settings in PShop wil help that out?

    Try adjustment layers first, start with levels:

    you'll see a graph with 3 sliders, I always adjust the sliders on the edges first and then the one in the middle.

    check out seanarmenta's tips on adjusting b&w images, its something that i've recently started doing and its helped heaps:

    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3142

    for a bit more artistic effect, duplicate the main image layer and go to filters->distort->diffuse glow. Apply the filter and adjust the opacity of the layer. This is a really cool filter to use for b&w photos, if used sparingly it really makes a b&w stand out.

    Wow, thanks! I just seen something about this on Tech TV too, so I had somewhat of an idea how to do it. I just messed around with this one enough to let you see the label on the bottle. Neat stuff!
