Also, I don’t take pictures thinking “I wonder what other photographers will think of my processing.” If that’s the case for yourself, you’re a weirdo. That’s the problem with photography these days. I highly doubt that non-photographers would look at an image and think “Wonder if he used channels or Lightroom.” This is why pros get irritated with the legions of noobs that treat them like rockstars, asking them all the wrong questions about what gear they use, what film they shot, what bag the prefer.]]>
I’m hoping that photographers don’t forget how to “think” in black and white, rather than just shooting color all the time and switching in post-processing.]]>
Pre-digital, so you donâ€™t have to think about whether or not the photo was shot in color and digitally converted to black and white because the dress was too distracting and the women on the left was wearing a day-glo yellow jersey
i wonder how many are really thinking this.
this may be simply a point only made by a photographer for photographers.
the black and white way more than likely *does* matter, however (regardless of how it got there,although admittedly there’s something different IMO about desaturated bw vs. ‘natural’ bw).
thanks for this great series of writings.]]>
