Working within Black & White Tones
May 6th, 2011 at 12:29pm
As some may know I am a big admirer of good quality Black & White landscape photography and recently I have not produced much in the way of new black and white images, one being the landscapes have to lend themselves that way and I have not really been in the right locations to produce this, and secondly I have been working towards trying to improve through tone my black and white images. For me black and white photography is less about the absolute black and white and more about achieving tones within the zones more specifically zones 2 and 9 ( zone 2 black with hint of detail – zone 9 nearly white ) ….
Here is my latest attempt and trying the pull the viewer into the forest … I called it forever because hopefully these California Redwoods will be around forever ….
