Diggin’ the blues
Lately I can’t help myself from looking through images shot expressly to be displayed in color and visualizing them as black and white. The feeling, the atmosphere, the tone of the photograph changes completely. I converted this to black and white and massaged it only to have it feeling a little flat. With just a touch of blue the image seemed to come to life for me.
With a heavy frost forecast for where I live tomorrow (Thursday) morning, I am anxious to get out with my camera to experiment again. I’ve also been closely watching the weather in the mountains in the hopes of getting away before winter finally locks everything frozen for the next six months.
This photo is more of a quick sketch in Photoshop instead of an earnest effort to create something lasting. I know that I’ll come back to it in a few days and re-work it completely. No biggy. I am doing this purely to amuse myself and see what results. After a year of being bored by photography I am feeling more excited about the possibilities ahead.
