Testing Tritone
Posted By: Lilly, 03-18-2008, 12:02 PM

Hi there, I am new in these parts and I am looking forward to gaining more knowledge on the K10D, it has been my camera for the past 12 months and I am still learning, but enjoying it very much. It has got to the stage where I feel undressed without it!
Anyway, here are a few pics that I took recently:

I know I sound like a broken record, but the textures are remarkable. Is this an HDR in B&W?

Hi Lilly,

I have to say that these are some of the most remarkably done b&w images that I have seen posted on the forum... or anywhere else for that matter. The tonal range is outstanding, the contrast and the tinting is well executed. Hope to see more of your posts in the future.

Did you come from film and printing by any chance?

Welcome

Welcome to the Forum. (nice graceful entrance by the way). I have always loved strong architectural compositions, and doors and arches are always very powerful. The conversions really bring the textures to the front of the stage. The conversions seem more of a mix between Sepia Tone and B&W as there is a warmth left in the shots that a straight B&W conversion only could never offer.

The grain and the texture are outstanding. Mind to share your method?

Thank you Stephen and everyone else for your positive comments, yes, correct - I do come from a film and printing background, did an evening course in dev & printing and was hooked from there on, how did you guess! I also love to get involved in my images in very artistic way.

Thanks for a great welcome

No HDR at all on these, though I am just starting to experiment with HDR.

My method is : basically I use CS3, convert from a 16 bit raw to mono with the CS3 Black & White converter, then levels, curves etc., a lot of artisitc burning and dodgin in to bring out the textures, then apply a tritone, all with CS3, thats it really, hope this helps
