Has anyone converted their camera to B&W only and realized any benefits from doing this?
Title: Re: Black & White
Post by: candyman on February 20, 2012, 10:16:06 AM
I believe there is no difference using B&W in camera to post-processing into B&W rather than the advantage of being able to see on the spot if the lighting is good/interesting when using B&W in camera. By using B&W in camera you can correct your shot at site if lighting is not to your satisfactory

I download my images from my computer files, this is how I do it: first make copy of image, then re-size or compress then click "reply" on the forum then "attachments and other options" then "browse" find your compressed/re-sized image in the box/window that opens on your screen, click "open" then "Post" and it should work.

Great shot!  What is your post-production process to create the aged look?

This was aged using Nik silver eFex pro

Of course the hardest part is the pre planning both of the location and the lighting.

This is a shoot I took of my neice whilst I was teaching her how to use a digital SLR camera. She is currently studying AS level photography in the UK college and for a her first project was testing black and white photograpgy. She needed to get some large prints made of the photographs (http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/belfast) and we used this site. they came out fantastic and it was cheaper than renting a dark room out and doing it that way.

I am experimenting with the silhouette technique. I have just recently gotten access to a studio at work where I can try different techniques. If you have time, I would love some feedback. I took two of a collegue of mine who is pregnant, where one is a silhouette (she has clothing on, although 500px classified it as nude content when I posted it on my page there).

Has anyone converted their camera to B&W only and realized any benefits from doing this?

I did have my old 20D converted to infrared (thankyou lifepixel!), and have been quite happy with it.  I shoot mostly B&W infrared with that camera now and am quite happy with it.  When I got my new 5D, I realized that the old 20D wouldn't have been worth much, so now it is getting a second life as a dedicated infrared unit.

The framing could be a little wider, as you are clipping the far right side of the building. 

If the source shot is color (before you desaturate it), you could try to bring out more contrast by increasing/decreasing color saturation.  For example, if the sea is blue, select the saturation slider for the blue hue in your photo editor, and slide it back and forth.  The areas that are blue in color should lighten or darken.

Another trick you could try if you use Adobe RAW is to adjust the Clarity or Contrast sliders to create some detail in the waves, or better separate your whites and blacks.

Thanks,
I'm going to try that.

That is not B/W but Sepia or something.

After 40 years I did not realize that, I will go back and redo all my work.

Toning of images has a long history, both in recreating classic B&W looks and to increase permanency of B&W images. They are still considered by most to be B&W. If they are not to your taste that is fine.

As for your image, it's a cute image of two animals.

The subway shot is brilliant! Love the tonality and the composition. I took one today, and I would love to get some feedback. I am trying to understand sharpening and depth in cs6, and in this one I have worked a little bit on curves, levels and tried to feel my way with high pass.

See that is what I'm asking about,
how do you have an eye for that,
I guess It'll take me some time. 
Thanks for share.   :)

40D 70-200 f4 IS

What a beautiful picture! I love the sepiaish tone, the pose, the eyes and the subject-background.

Thanks man! The thing is, it wasn't "set up" at all, just dumb luck like most of my shots. It was taken during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where a few thousand performers/acts take part during August each year. The Royal Mile in Edinburgh becomes a portrait photographer's paradise.

I must admit the girl in the shot was rather nice (I can still taste her perfume  8)). She was moving around alot and I managed to get the shot. What you don't see is the heavy cropping and tweaking required to hide people in the background (it's so busy in places you can't move for people). Also just creeping into the shot was the girl she is looking up at.

The one problem with taking portraits at the Fringe is that, because it's maybe 95% amateur shows from college or university drama groups, the performer's makeup can be a bit slap-dash and their hair is blowing about a bit which means you have to learn how to use the clone stamp in Photoshop!

A portrait shoot I did this past weekend.  This young lady could easily grace the cover of any magazine in the world if she wanted to pursue a modeling career.  But noooooo!!!  She wants to be an electrical engineer.  Go figure.

I agree, I completely enjoyed the 400f/2.8 II, wonderful Lens, but the versatility of the 200-400 just works, when I'm travelling in Africa I really can't get my gear down to anything less than 20Kgs in my Pack, so it's always an extra seat to ensure no issues with Hand Carry, the 200-400 + the 400 + the 600, just doesn't work well for travelling, and in Africa putting a Large White into check In luggage is the same as donating to charity (I meant a large white Lens, not, you know).

Awesome seeing all the excellent mono images - figured I'd show a couple of mine. The first is the back of flats and houses in Bath, and the second is a street in Bristol. I went through a phase of trying to make my mono images look old, and this was done with a preset for Lightroom that I made myself...

Love the legs shot, very well done.

Also good to see the Bristol Fighter getting a viewing. I presume this was part of the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden.

After a disasterous start when they tried to use the rear gunner as the main armament the Bristol went on to become one of the most successful aircraft of World War One, a forward firing fighter like the other scouts but one which could protect its tail. Stayed in service after the war longer than any other aircraft.

I think this is the only airworthy one left, although much of a disassembled one was recent found in a barn, and the last I heard a consortium were boing to rebuild it to flying standard.

I know a little about these because when I was a young lad we had a family friend who flew as the rear gunner in one during the war in 1918 having lied about his age in order to join up.

Thanks for the comments and history. Yes its the Shuttleworth one, I only live 10-miles from there and use to help out at the shows.

Cool, she has a great face and fantastic eyes. It must be fun shooting with her.

I hope you'll be able tonpost some photos from the new shoot.

I have recently moved from one continent to another and don't have any models yet for my portrat shoots that I like to do so much. I hope that will be sorted soon.

Happy new year to you!
Thanks. Until a couple of years or so ago, I hdn't really done any proper portrait shoots, concentrating on nature photography, but this year, I've done more portraits than anything else (it's been a difficult year for me). A few weeks ago, I joined a site designed to get various creatives together, mainly for portraiture. Happy New Year to you too.

That sounds interesting, I hope you'll find a lot of inspiration. These photos inspired me, in fact I contacted a model I've used before where I used to live. I have already planned to go back for a visit in April, and now I'm even more excited. We talked a bit yesterday and we will hopefully use a very interesting setting. Thanks for the inspiration!

Would you like to explain how your light setup was for thos shoot?

Thanks for your comments. It isn't often as a photographer that you get told a shot of yours is inspiring. The lighting was actually very simple. It was a single flashgun, shot through an umbrella, held high (probably around 7 feet). Probably with more complex lighting, it would have lost the feel. I increased the contrast during PP, to give it a harder look and added some light grain (as well as the obvious vignette).
Good luck with your shoot and hope to see some of the results.

Thanks, I will be travelling half way cross the globe for my shoot and won't have too much room for gear, especially since I'm bringing my golf clubs too. I am new to using flash so I will put in some practice first go make sure I won't hesitate too much when I'm there. I will go in April so there will be some time before I post anything but I promise I will.

I like how the HDR highlights the chrome and also all of the detail it shows in the tires.  I also like how it made the shadows look.

Many good BW photos in this post. Great inspiration, thank you.

My three selected shots:
1. Kullen (in Sweden) - I like this group of people - a group but still seems very not connected
2. Plates and fork - thank you to Andre Kertesz for strong inspiration
3. Another kitchen utensil

I think I shot 7 exp.  to preserve the highlights around that back door....the image is misleading due to the sensor's ability to record near darkness in the foreground compared to the bright highlights of the sun around that back door.
The dynamic range was extreme.

I like it because it is really something different.

I was out looking for various birds yesterday, and in a marshy area was a small dry tongue of land under trees where I could stand and spot/shoot. After a few minutes (without any birds) I turned to shoot the old pole I leaned my gear on.
Came out with this: "Round and around"

Took these down in Atlanta while visiting my daughter. It was in a neat little neighborhood (I can't remember the name). Anyway, I noticed that on the HGTV show, Property Brothers, the intro has them walking thru this area. Apparently, it gets used a lot for photo sessions. Anybody from Atlanta might be able to attest to that.

Just returned from a 6 day workshop with Morten Krogvold, one of the finest artistic photographers in the world and maybe the best on portraits.

My "project" was to photograph the local violin maker. The task was to capture the man, his instrument, his shop and his passion. Not exactly within my comfort zone. Here´s the result.

I can't compete with Eldar's wonderful African wildlife, but here's a couple of my animals. The cat thinks it's a tiger and the horse seems to think it's a hippo judging by what he does in muddy wet fields. Both taken on the EF 100mm f/2 which I recently resurrected from the back of a cupboard.

I feel the same way about B&W. I can spend hours fiddling with an image. It's still very much a photographer's medium.

I think the 100 actually pings focus better wide open than the 85mm f/1.8.

Thanks guys, really liked your cat Sporgon. Reminds me of my own Local Lion :)

I have not worked with anything in B&W for quite some time. However, when I got started, it is very difficult to stop. As you say Sporgon, it is very much a photographer´s medium and it is very rewarding to really work one image to its maximum potential (within the narrow limits of my post processing skills though).

This is another I have posted in colour on an other thread. A beautiful lady ellie, so close I could almost reach out and touch her.

Shot standing on a wiggly stepladder, on an icy surface, temperature -17C/-2F, very early in the morning. For those who know their Douglas Adams, there is a deep message out on the right :)

Ahh, the price you pay for art. Step ladders and cameras are a tricky proposition. Great frame.

Here is one I took and my wife insisted I put into my portfolio. Fortunately I listened to her, this has been licensed more than once by Getty. The last licence went to IKEA... I have no idea what they plan on doing with it.

Well here is a physically impaired female horse rider who weight lifts in the gym:

This lady was a professional show jumper. Broke her back, then later her neck, now has no feeling down right hand side. Shortlisted for the British team in Dressage for the Rio 2016 Para Olympics ! Quite a woman.

Went on a tour of a local railway museum yesterday, here are the two shots I've kept, not completely happy with either of them. Comments and criticism welcomed.

Couldn't crop wider on either which is bugging me a little. Feel the background is a little distracting on the first, and the second just feels...not quite right.

Thanks Click. Yes, I agree. These birds are fascinating, very expressive and they make sure every last bit is used :)

This image has not been through much editing. I have lowered green and yellow, to tone down the grass around the birds, lifted white a little bit and then just played with contrast and clarity.

Accidentally though, Angelina Jolie was in Anchor Wat when I took this image, for the opening of her new movie "First they killed my father". I should have manned up and asked her to stand model for me ;)

Thanks guys, the waterfall is quite a spectacle and the little man, with his beaten posture sort of makes it :)

We had the Tall Ship Race around here, a couple of weeks back. This is the rig of the fantastic Shabab Oman II. This is a three-masted squared rigged clipper, built for speed. She has 29 sails measuring 2,630 square metres, to give her a sailing speed of up to 17 knots.

Hasselblad H6D-100c, HCD28mm, 1/800s, f/8.0, ISO64.

PS! I have tried to post this with normal LR export settings. However, CR crashes with this file. This is an attempt with a slightly smaller file size, where more of the splendour of the Hassy is lost.

Nice shots folks. I have been over that bridge. A beautiful bridge it is.

This is the statue "Drinking man", standing outside Oslo City Hall. This was made in 1958, by a famous artist, Per Palle Storm. A fun coincidence form me is that it was unveiled on the very day I was born. This was shot with a Leica M10 and a 35 f1.4 Summilux @f1.4. I have always been intrigued by the Leica concept, but their digital offerings has not been up to speed, until now. The M10 is a very fun camera, with a very high quality sensor. They have also made sufficient changes to the physics, to make it feel like an old film version. The lenses are just out of this world. So small and so incredibly good.

Building entrance, Victoria, British Columbia...
Nice, I love Victoria... I was born just across the water in the New Dungeness light station when my dad was stationed in the CG there. Great area of the country and Vancouver is probably my absolute favorite city.

So I'll add another. I recently picked up a minty Rollieflex 2.8F to carry a MF camera with me daily. LOVE IT !!!! I'm running BW mostly through it and keeping color in my Leica M6... between the two I have not much need of anything else for personal work.

I have been developing my own film for 20+ years but not much BW. Recently started a lot of experimenting with Rodinal in stand development.  Finally got a nice routine for TMY-2 and Delta Pro, nice grain and so much accutance... This was an early test and had a little bromide drag but overall liked the results.

Good to see B&W photography alive and kicking!

This is from a project I just finished, shooting all phases involved with a triathletes tormented journey through swimming, cycling and running. This is Andy, a South-African who turned Norwegian.

A little street work... I have been stranger shooting for ages. Over 3000 after about 10 years doing it. Never got the hang of candid work and always felt it kinda sneaky so I ask people for their portraits instead. I'm trying to do more sneaky stuff these days. I have about 30 rolls of BW to develop soon and I'm eager to see what comes of it.

Thanks Eldar, Click and DPC...

Great action shot... perfect for BW.

I read your Flickr profile Eldar. Struck a chord with me a bit with the darkroom comment. Many years ago I had my own darkroom and did tons of film but when digital came around I was quick to just ship (unlike your situation) as it was "NEW"... a little different than you. Now after many years in digital I have been moving to analog again. I run a studio and I'm not a anti-digital as I need to rely on it for client work but for everything else I'm moving back to analog. I love the process more than ever now in my life. I'm going to follow you on Flickr to see your updates !

Cheers, David...

Ans another BW using a X100S...

Thanks David,

I enjoyed the darkroom a lot. However, I am now totally converted to digital. I have thought of picking up analogue and film again, but I don´t have enough time. If I started with film again it would be to also produce proper prints and that takes a lot of time. But you never know, retirement is approaching and suddenly I will have all the time in the world.

Instead I have bought a Leica M10, with an APO Summicron 50/2 and a Summilux 35/1.4. I travel a lot and wanted the size/quality combination. The sensor in the M10 is quite impressive, compared to its predecessors. However, I have not used a rangefinder for about 30 years, so I suppose it will be a frustrating few first months, but hopefully I will get the technique back eventually ...

Here is the triathlete finally on the bike.

Nice work ! I just bought the M10 also. I have quite a few Leicas from analog to digital but I still favor the first one I bought in 86 (M6 .72 non-ttl). Though the M10 is quite nice. I'm a few years from retirement but the studio now runs without my daily input. So I am free to shoot as much film as I like (and chase my kids around). A new darkroom and proper paper printing will be up next.

David...

Here is one from a stranger shoot today... counted up my total after about 14 years of doing this. I ask rather than sneak candids. Thought I had about 3k  but turn out closer to 5k. Joshua is my typical find, couldn't pass him up without turning around and approaching him. I use to get turned down about 40% of the time but now I'm easily getting 90%or better  agreeing now.

Memories... probably the most important aspect of photography to me. Moments captured in time.

Here is a stranger shot from last evening. Michael, waiting for a ride and asked about my camera, so it was a perfect intro to ask for his street portrait. He was pretty uncomfortable but agreed.

Good portrait. There's a rather detached, far away look in the fellow's eyes. I agree about memories.

Yes, I always liked that outfit. A close examination of the picture reveals some teary eyes. Too long ago to know what that was about. I'm sure it wasn't the clothes, though.  :)

The Contaflex Beta is a great camera, I had one too years ago. Hopefully she is using them and they're just not shelf queens. This Tengor is a whole nother beast though... makes the Contaflex look like a digital wonder compared to the box.

I often shoot with models that want portraits for various sites. It breaks up the daily grind of client work (corporate, family and weddings). With paid work you are on the clock and must meet the requirements of the assignment or no pay. An even stricter rule I follow personally is never posting client work... EVER !!! It's even written in my contracts. Never understood how "professionals" take paid work and then post client images on forums like this, IG or Flickr. Anyways...

Models on the other hand, don't usually have an agenda and just want great artistic images. They will work with you to get good results. They want the world to see them and I take full advantage of this. This shoot was a prime example of that. Kindra is IG "famous" and in trade for my services I get to use the images for whatever I like so long as it's not commercial.

So this is one of my "directions" I give models that are fairly new to the game, and even seasoned ones. I say "Give me a pissed look... like you're pissed as your S.O." It make my assistants laugh as they know I will eventually ask for this. There are a quite a few other "tricks" I use but this is one of my faves.

This was shot in color and on medium format, I hate converting images to BW but this one kept calling for it. So here it is... The "pissed off" request with Kindra  >:(   :D

Nice shots, Pookie! I’m not overly sad about the snow over the horizon, but I confess to liking spring, summer and fall more than winter. Shovelling snow at -20 or -30 isn’t much fun. Still, winter does offer some great photo ops and I enjoy taking the kids and grandkids skiing and boarding at Lake Louise every March even though I only partake of winter sports vicariously.  :o

Ahh, I see... Yea, we have a cabin in Tahoe and the first job when arriving is the shoveling... once you've done that a few times you can def understand why so many have heart attacks doing it. Still though, I love the season and I just went last night to pick up two boards for my boys. A bit early but getting ready for the fun ;)

Hi,

in my fotoclub we do have two contests per year. The theme for the current contest is shadows. This is a good reason to develop the taken pictures as black and white.
First one: view from the CN tower in Toronto on its own shadow over Toronto downtown:

Second one: self portrait of me and my bike (camera was mounted on the bike) at a speed of approx. 12mph / 20km/h:

Yes, Catherine, it's a very nice picture. Polar bears have a cuddly persona about them, more so than other bears. Looks can be deceiving. Masks are meant to hide. It's a shame that their habitat is now changing in ways that puts them at risk.  :)
