Angles

I've just finished reading an article about different techniques to produce a B&W with Photoshop. One of these techniques is to use the monochrome feature of the channel mixer and then slide the red, green and blue channels until you achieve the desired effect.

In the top photo I was emphasizing on the contrast of the sky, but to the detriment of the walls looking dirty.

The next photo was lightening up the walls and at the same time removing the focus from the sky to the building.

Very cool images, a lot of potential for cropping etc.

I love b/w photography, but it's not just a simple case of converting colour images. I've really enjoyed mucking about with brightness, contrast etc. You really have to think differently with b/w and I think you've highlighted a major issue of b/w photography with this post.

Thanks for all the comments.

I agree Johnny. I think it is important to not just turn it into grayscale, but to enhance the tones and contrast in it.

I too like the way it removes the focus from the sky and highlights the contrast in the angles.

Thanks for all your comments.
