2nd round of the Print Competition
This week we have the second round of the Club print competition, this round is one of my favourites, monochrome. I shoot in colour (RAW) and convert to monochrome in Photoshop. You can exercise great control over the conversion by controlling the way in which the individual colour channels are converted. By darkening the blues you can make the sky darker increasing the contrast against the clouds, so that in extreme you can create an almost infra-red effect. You can also simulate various black and white film effects by adjusting the colour channels when using the Photoshop curves function.
