Picture of the Day - 5/18/2011
Zabrisky Point, Death Valley, CA - As a part of our workshop, I had brought several candidate images from home to convert to B&W and Dante's View in Death Valley was one of my favorites. Here's the converted image after massaging it using Lightroom. We'll be going even deeper into B&W conversions today. What's interesting about George DeWolfe's conversion techniques are that, as a past student of Ansel Adams and Minor White, he has translated their darkroom techniques to the digital realm to create a "presence" or depth to the 2D image. He's also pulled in specialized techniques from painters, such as outlining objects to make them stand out better.
