EMPS #28: BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY.
Ok everybody, grab your camera, fire up your imagination, and show me some BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY. The subject matter is completely up to you. Do something a little Silly, Fascinating, Spooky, Gothic, or Artsy Noir... it's completely up to you! Just make it BLACK & WHITE
Well, as far as I can tell my camera doesn't take B&W shots. I can edit them to B&W or sepia in the camera after I've taken the shot, but that's a little dicey.
I worked with this photo in PSP a lot today. The original color version had a busy and distracting background, so I cropped a lot out and converted to B&W.
Now, my question for you: which version do you like better? The full length is very long and narrow. The cropped version really focuses on the faces, but the cradling hands are missing.
The story of the photo: Laurie is comforting L after he bumped his head; Ms. P is helping with the comforting. The light is all natural - sun shining in the kitchen windows.
