I don’t have the luxury of shooting in a bustling metropolis here in Lemoore, so I was excited to get to Atlanta this year for an optometry conference. I got out for some shooting near my hotel, but the only days that I could sneak away from class were pretty overcast. This shot was taken at the Sun Trust building and I really liked how the sidewalk was mirrored by the covered bridge. As I walked around the corner, I saw the sculpture and thought it was a perfect focal point for the scene. When I processed this image, I immediately loved it, but something was missing. In my photography adventure, I haven’t done much with black and white, most likely because I really haven’t liked any of the conversion methods. I used to just desaturate the image, which leads to pretty crummy results, and I haven’t had much luck with the LR3 presets either… Well I have been playing around with Silver Efex Pro 2 and it has really changed the way I look at images. Who thought black and white could be so customizable! Because it was overcast that day, the scene was lacking some contrast, but I think it made a perfect conversion to B&W! What do you think?
