My favourite Black and White photos from the year

Black and White from 2014

I rarely decide before I shoot that the photo will be in black and white. When the colors are not the way I was hoping for, or if its a grey cloudy and rainy day is when I try and see what the photo looks like in black and white. Here are my selected photos from 2014 that I think turned out great in black and white. enjoy!

Enjoying the Action

Photographing Skateboarding

My last session with Blasko and Peter I didn’t use any off camera or on camera flashes. The setting sun was a great light source, and was pretty nice not to have to adjust the flashe all the time, but instead follow the action more closely and just taking photos.. And by bringing up the shadows in postprocess (adobe camera raw) It was enough to fill in the dark shadows when shooting against the sun on a day like that.

You can see the photos here.  Part One     Part Two
