Hi folks, Suby here.
Seems I have gone monochrome crazy, okay I have to admit, I love monochrome shots. For me it just makes the image more of a "classic" and it stand out more. Also shooting for Black & White can make you a better photographer, with no colour to focus your attention on, you need to think more about the light and shadow, composition, contrast, shape and texture - the essential elements of black & white photography, mastery of which will also transform your colour shots.
I took this shot this afternoon during my lunch break. Couple of work mates where enjoying the warm weather and gladly allowed me the to snap snap snap (think they are now inclined to just accept Suby & his camera on Fridays). I took this shot from this angle on purpose, sort of appealed to me, like the fact the where in deep conversation.
Had fun converting this to monochrome.
Lesson: The Channel Mixer emulates the effect of the conventional black & white filters by enabling you to adjust the Red, Blue & Green channels.
So what do you guys think of the shot & editing?
