LACMA in Black and White

Black and white photography can be stunning. The subject speaks in a way that oftentimes color doesn’t allow to be expressed, the color distracting from the image. Some of the most famous pictures, those of Ansel Adams for example, were shot in BW. I haven’t used much BW film over the years, except when I was a kid, carefully clicking away the 12 shot film roll in my little Kodak. I love color. But, after visiting various photography blogs recently, and seeing fabulous images, I decided to choose a few photos I’d recently taken at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and digitally remove the saturation. I don’t know if that’s how other photographers convert to BW, but it’s what I did. I used that method on a few of my street photography shots, thereby creating more drama in the scene. Any thoughts, comments or better techniques you might have, I’d certainly appreciate reading. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    I think the b&w photography looks great. I find that it gives the subject a whole other angle to be seen. Thanks for sharing, Connie
