Making Photographs Black & White in GIMP

Black and White images have been neglected ever since the introduction of colour into film photography, due to the fact that colour is ‘best’ and what we see (colour) is the true beauty of a scene/object. As this is the case now, whenever black and white images are created it is perceived as a kind of artistic aesthetic that the photographer has wanted to achieve and considering colour is the norm now, this photograph is viewed in a different light and more of an artists creation rather than the representative. So, I hope to get you more creative in experimenting with your photographs with these easy Black and White conversion processes!

Shot of the Day #56

I attempted a ‘HDR’ like image in Photoshop’s Camera Raw and it turned out to be very handy in manipulating my photograph into a better quality image than I would have produced if I used Photomatix (in my opinion)! If you look closely at the screenshots of my before and after the level of noise is very minimal in the shadows in particular and I would have a massive amount of noise after processing a raw in Photomatix!

Shot of the Day #55

Uluru is the largest rock in the world and it is always interesting to compare the size – I don’t think I gave a fair representation of the size in this photograph, however the 2-3cm rock in the foreground is 2.1km from Uluru!

Cedric Canard – Australian Photographer – Inspiration

Cedric Canard (aka Wottheduk on Flickr) has given a lot of inspiration over the past couple of years for me, and opened my eyes to the ideas in exploring urban-landscapes. I have selected a short list of his most admired photographs and thought that others should have the benefits of discovering his talents, especially the grungy effects!
