The essential forest

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
Ted Grant

  1. You pose a very provocative question, Mel. Why not? I may look at my images and ask myself that question or shoot some more with that specific intent. Did you decide to go black and white before or after you took the photos?


    • Mike,
      I am getting better at seeing the potential for B&W while in the field; however, these were conversions I decided to make once I started processing. The fall colors are bright this year but the backgrounds are dull so I chose to see how the images would look if only the tones were considered, not the colors.
