Black and white photos with your digital camera

Most digital cameras allow you to take black and white photos if you wish. Some digital cameras have a built-in feature that allows you to convert photos to black and white in-camera. Also, most cameras now come with some sort of editing software. If you take ai colorize, you can convert it to black and white with the software. By doing this, you have the option of using the photo both ways.

Depending on the quality of the software used, it is possible to create a huge amount of black and white quality. If you’re serious about your photography but don’t want to go for Adobe Photo Shop, Adobe Light room is a great choice. I find it very intuitive. Much cheaper, especially if you are a student.

If you’ve been doing photography in the digital age, you may never have worked with or used black and white images. With a few clicks, you can turn a photo from a simple place or event into a work of art. (If you have a friend who has an old film enlarger or at school or something, try your hand at it. It’s a lot more work, but real magic.)

If you’ve just taken color pictures, it’s time to make it better:

Choose ten photos that you have taken in the last 2-3 months. Open your software editing program. You probably got it when you bought the camera. If it’s not available or you don’t like it, there are several free programs online. One such is PhotoScape. Pretty easy to use and has some interesting filters. There are only three different black and white devices available, but this will run one.

Take your first photo with whatever software you use and convert it to black and white. Save it as a separate file. Now you can make it a little more interesting by using the Brightness/Contrast settings. Make a few changes and then save it again under a different filename. Open both photos and color and compare.

Don’t be afraid to experiment. If you save the photo with a different file name than the original, everything is fine. Try some with people/portraits so you can see what happens to skin tones and some with landscapes or even a beach or sunset shot. You will be surprised – hopefully in a good way. This exercise will also help you pay attention to certain things the next time you shoot a certain type of subject. For example, if you want more detail in a portrait, you’ll probably try changing the lighting or settings next time.

Play with the brightness and contrast knobs while testing.

Try some extremes to see what effects you can create. There are a lot of sophisticated photo editing programs out there, but something like PhotoScape gives you the experience to see what you like and don’t like. From there, you can explore the best software for your purposes.

If you’re going to capture photos that you’re going to convert to black and white, be aware that colors come out in different shades of gray. Ideally, most finished photos will have a full range from white to black. If you shoot in very bright sunlight, the conversion may result in only white and black. If this is your intention, it can be accentuated by using the Brightness/Contrast buttons again.

Even after color photography became popular, many artists still prefer black and white photography even today. Part of this used to be a matter of cost, as black and white film was cheaper than the newer technology of color film. But more importantly, people believed that black and white photography was the traditional way to take good photos. Today, history is so rich and detailed that monochrome photography still seems “classic” to us.

The most famous black and white photographs – in fact,

 The most famous photographs of all time – were taken by one man, Ansel Adams. In the 1930s he became known as a photographer in the “f/64” group. These artists believed in visual clarity and fine detail; their shots were carefully focused to be as sharp and precisely framed as possible.

Adams grew up in California and loved the grandeur of the American West. The Great Depression still affected the entire country, but for many, the unspoiled natural splendor of the West Coast symbolized hope for the country. Adams’s highly skilled photographs of mountains and deserts were a welcome escape from the harsh images of life in the 1930s that many artists felt obliged to focus on.

Adams loved the national parks, especially Yosemite, and was hired by the US government in the early 1940s to photograph the national park system and other important sites, leading to such famous photos as “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico” and perhaps his greatest challenge.
