    I've got a new bw conversion process that I LOVE!!! It gives such a thick, contrasty bw. Seems like every other conversion that I've tried gives a weak, greyscale output.

    These were all done via pure black and white gradient map. The last one required a lot more PS work to achieve the silouette effect though.

    I'd really like to try that middle-of-the-street shot with a fisheye from a super low angle, sometime. Don't have a fisheye (or the $$ for such a specialized lens) though. :(

    John, you're doing good work. :thumbup: Your clients are undoubtedly thrilled with your fun camera angles and poses. First rate!

    My only nitpick is a couple of hot spots on the groom-to-be's face in the second one. But you caught such perfect expressions it's hard to say anything bad here! :lol:

    So happy to hear business is booming. :D

    Ohhhhh... fish eye... drool drool.
    I do A LOT of weddings and I really want a fish eye to artsy it up a little bit! But as you say.. dont have the $$$$ to make that happen just yet!

    Nice stuff! I really enjoy the first one and third one!

    The first one is my favorite, the angle is absolutely fantastic.
