After months of absence I finally managed to show my face at VNF-West Fotoclub this evening. On the agenda today was black and white photography, following on from a presentation given earlier in the year on techniques for converting colour images to black and white. I spent a hour or so in the greenhouse with my macro lens last Friday, with the intention of using those images to prepare something for this evening. In the end, between a quick visit to the UK in the weekend and two long days at work, I didn’t have much time to process the images, but I picked out a few to take with me – four which were true B&W, and three experiments, one with a tomato flower, and the other two courgette flowers, in which I desaturated all tones except the yellow of the flower. The first one, particularly, was very well received.
