Me & Monochrome

I love black and white photos - always have. I love the moodiness and drama that monochrome can create from an otherwise blah shot, particularly when there are clouds like in the series below. I personally find black and white conversions a great way to handle tricky lighting situations such as screamingly glary days. While I should probably learn how to better handle tricky lighting situations, I'm happy to keep playing with good ole black and white.

I took these shots yesterday at about midday under the hot sun on Red Beach, Bribie Island. In the first one, I've bumped down the clarity to give the water a blurred effect, and in the seond image, I've bumped up the contrast and sharpness.
