Trying to get the hang of B&W photography.
I Love the photo , but i think more constrast would work better, it would punch it up
Cute cat btw
I love this pose, and how the kitty appears to be looking away but if you look closely I think she is indeed looking at the camera. I agree with Lula, some more contrast would make this photo stand out more. That's something I struggle with in my own black and whites. Are you shooting film or digital and converting?
what they ^ said! nice composition. if you boost the contrast and it looks better, give us a show!
The first one, besides a slight crop, is straight off the camera, digital in B&W. Is this better? If not, please have a go at it to show me. My aim is to get them better when I shoot 'em.
I do have a hard time adjusting B&W photos.
Thanks for any input and help. Every little bit helps.
Here is a super quick go at it using an S curve in Levels a tad of USM to make it more textured and a little edge burning . . .
Maybe a bit too contrived on my part though :?
Picksure, B&W photography is all about the subject... considering there is no color you need to have the texture and the placement compensate...
Look at my most recient B&W and that might give you a bit of understanding... for me it's hard to explain...
Ahh, I see. Thank-you both.
off to try the S curve thingy now..............
