Some Black and White Photos I've been working on
Posted By: bakerking31, 11-07-2017, 10:45 PM

I've always loved black and white (started with B&W film in high school). Here are some recent ones from my hikes in the Sierras this year. Comments/criticism is welcome.

The more high key of the first 2 images is a new style for me, I traditionally prefer more a high contrast darker overtone similar to Ansel Adams (my photography hero). Last one is more my traditional editing style of high contrast/drama style.

Very nice shots, even with varying contrast. I like the first, I think its the log that draws you in.

Really like these.
The log in the first one does lead you nicely into the image.
Same with the path / trail in the second, are the trees all leaning to the left ? , might be just me. I like it
regardless
Last one works for me, I love shots with black blacks and everything inbetween.
Great shooting

K3ii with a Tamron 17-50 2.8

That one was on the wider end, probably around 20mm and f11. I'll look it up for sure when I get home. It was an HDR done on a hiking tripod that uses my trekking poles for legs. Im fairly certain the longest exposure was in the multiple seconds long since it was taken at sunset in a valley. The spot it was taken is in the middle of the southern Sierras at my campsite on a backpacking trip.

Post was done in Lightroom for the original photo a few months ago (in the photo critique section because I felt it was missing something). Tas over there suggested black and white so I processed the rest in silver effects first then Photoshop for dodging and burning.
