    DefaultObservation About B&Ws

    I've looked at several B&W conversions over the last few days. One of the biggest problems I'm seeing is that the original pictures have problems of their own. It is not easy to convert a picture and make it look good as a B&W unless it's a good picture to begin with. By now, everyone should be able to start critiquing their own photos. Let's try to convert only the very best photos we can. If a picture has a blown out area in color, it will only appear worse in B&W.

    When you post a B&W conversion, please tell me how you converted it. If you just used an auto conversion, there's not really anything I can do to improve it. Hopefully, Linda will do an editing lesson soon, so you'll understand more how to do manual editing.

    Speaking of manual editing, I wish more people would try my RAW lesson... :P

    Wish I could try a raw photo, but I cannot find anywhere on my camera where I can do that.

    Monnie, do you want us to continue taking some pictures and converting them into B&W?

    I want to let you know I enjoyed the lesson. I can see where it would be like an insurance policy--able to fix a not so perfect picture. I just wish I had a better eye for things.

    Sue, not necessarily. If you feel you can convert them ok, you shouldn't need to.

    Thanks Linda... I'm glad you enjoyed it.
