I just wanted to share some of my favorite recent BW photography. I would also love to see everyone else's BW photography.

My mom while we were slip-n-sliding


CJ on a swinging bridge last weekend. This one has a lot of blow-outs, but there's not much I can do about it since that's part of the original. I just really like it.

GREAT shots Amber, I love the first one of your Mom, how awesome to catch a shot of her like that and for her to even be doing that with you guys.

I'll post a few of mine a bit later, I'm still playing catch up.

oh i LOVE LOVE LOVE those. Awesome shots. I wanna be like youl

I don't have any to share. I have NOT figured out how to get a good b&w conversion. I need to break down and buy a good action (I have pse3) but I haven't let go of the money yet.

Very nice shots!
Slip-n-Slides! Wow, that brings back memories! I cannot even fathom how much blood was spilt in my backyard as a child because of that contraption! Oh my rocks are baaaad things!! But so much fun and you really captured the fun with her expression.

Wow...I totally agree...I want to her like her too! But I think I'm even further away from that than most. I don't even know what a good action is! Here's a b&w that I love but I know it could be fixed up some. I just don't know how to do it. BTW...what are "blow-outs"?

That's a great BW candace! I love it! Your kids look so great. I love kids in hats!

Blow-outs are where there is too much light and so it blows out all the details and basically is just white. In the swinging bridge one the wood planks and my son's backside are blown out. In most cases, this is the result of a picture being overexposed.

but you know, those blowouts fit the "mood" of the picture, kwim? It doesn't detract from it at all.

Great pic Candace.

I love all three of those B/Ws! Simply terrific work.

And, I wouldn't worry about the blowouts - it works with the photo.

When you are doing your black and white photos are you TAKING them with the camera on black and white setting or are you converting them into B&W with photoshop?

Which is better?

IMO, always shoot with your camera in color...you can always convert to b&w later, but it's nice to have the color version if you want/need it...plus it's easier to tweak your b&w's if they start out in color.
