Black And White Photography Rule Of Thirds.

Take Control. Although coloured filters can still be used to manipulate contrast when shooting digital black and white images, it’s more prominent to save this work until the processing stage. Until a a couple years ago Photoshop’s Channel Mixer was the favored means of turning colour images monochrome, but now Adobe Camera Raw has more forceful tools (in the HSL/Grayscale tab) that allow you to adjust the brightness of eight individual colours that make up the image. It’s possible to adjust single of these colours to make it anything from white to black with the sliding control. However, it’s important to keep an eye on the whole image when adjusting a particular colour as subtle gradations should become unnatural looking. And adjusting the brightness of a red or rosy shirt with the red sliding control, for moment , will have an impact on the model’s skin, especially the lips. The Levels and Curves controls should also be used to manipulate tonal range and contrast, but the HSL/Grayscale controls allow you to create discrimination between objects of the same brightness but with unique colours.

Try Long Exposure. Long exposure shots can work really well in monochrome photography, especially where there’s moving water or clouds. During the exposure the highlights of the water, for example, are recorded across a wider place than they would with a short exposure and this can help enhance tonal contrast. The blurring of the movement also adds textural contrast with any solid objects in the frame. If necessary , use a neutral density filter such as Lee Filters’ Big Stopper or Little Stopper to reduce exposure and extend shutter speed (by 10 and 4 stops respectively). typically , when exposures extend farther than concerning 1/60 sec a tripod is wanted to keep the camera still and avoid blurring. It’s also advisable to use a remote release and mirror lock-up to minimise vibration and produce super-sharp images.

Dodge and Burn. Dodging and burning is a manner that comes from the traditional darkroom and is usually used to burn in or darken highlights and hold back (brighten) shadows. Photoshop’s Dodge and Burn tools allow a level of control that film photographers could only dream of because you can target the highlights, shadows or mid-tones with both. This means that you should use the Burn tool to darken highlights when they are too bright, or the Dodge tool to brighten them to increase local contrast. It’s a great wont of sharing a sense of better sharpness and enhancing texture. Plus, because you can set the opacity of the tools, you should build up her effect gradually so the impact is crafty and there are no hard edges.

Shoot RAW + JPEG. The best monochrome conversions are blundered on by editing raw files which have the full colour information, but if you shoot raw and JPEG files simultaneously and set the camera to its monochrome picture Style/Picture Control/Film Simulation mode you get an indication of how the image will look in black and white. As numerous photographers struggle to visualise a scene in black and white, these monochrome modes are an invaluable tool that will help with composition and scene assessment. numerous cameras are also capable of producing decent in-camera monochrome images these days and it’s worth experimenting with image parameters (usually contrast, sharpness, filter effects and toning) to find a look that you like. Because compact drive cameras and compact cameras show the scene seen by the sensor with camera settings applied, users of these cameras are able to preview the monochrome image in the electronic viewfinder or on rear screen before taking the shot. DSLR users should also do this if they activate his camera’s live opinion means , but the usually slower responses mean that many will find it preferable or check the image on the screen post-capture.

Use Filters. Graduated neutral density (AKA ND grad) and polarizing filters are just as useful in monochrome photography as they are in colour. In fact, because they manipulate image contrast they are arguably more useful . An ND grad is cooperative when you want to retain detail in a bright sky while a polarizing filter should be used to reduce reflections and boost contrast. Alternatively, judge taking two or more shots with unique exposures to create a high dynamic range (HDR) composite. Don’t be afraid to use a ND grad with a standard neural density filter if the sky is brighter than the foreground in a long exposure shot. Coloured filters, which are an essential tool for monochrome film photographers, may also be advantageous for manipulating contrast in digital images. They work by darkening objects of their opposite colour while lightening objects of their own. An orange filter, for example, will darken the blue of the sky while a green one will lighten foliage.

Look for Contrast, Shape and Texture. The complimentary and opposing colours that bring a colour image to life are all decreased to black and white or shades of grey in a monochrome image and you have to look for tonal contrast to make a shot stand out. In colour photography, for example, your eye would right now be drawn to a red object on a green background, but in monochrome photography these two areas are likely to have the same brightness, so the image looks flat and dingy straight from the camera. luckily , it’s possible to work adjust the brightness of these two colours singly to introduce some contrast. However, a great starting point is to look for scenes with tonal contrast. There are always exceptions, but as a general rule look for scenes that contain some powerful blacks and whites. This should be achieved by the light or by the brightness (or tone) of the objects in the scene as well as the exposure settings that you use. The brightness of the bark of a silver birch tree for example, should inject some contrast (and interest) in to a woodland scene. Setting the exposure for these brighter areas also makes the shadows darker, so the highlights stand out even more. Look for shapes, patterns and textures in a scene and move around to find the unsurpassed composition.

Don’t forget to enter the current contest “Break the Rule of Thirds”!Welcome to the resurrection of Black and White Contests, with a twist. Many join this group hoping to improve their black and white photography skills, so contests will focus on a photographic technique instead of a subject.

We’ll all learn in the process, plus we’ll end up with collections of techniques “in action”. All genres of black and white can participate in each contest as long as they demonstrate the technique.

We’ll start with the basic Rule of Thirds. Good black and white photography requires excellent composition, as there are no color clues to emphasize the subject or minimize the background. In the rule of thirds, the important element(s) of your image should be positioned on vertical or horizontal “third” lines, at intersections of the lines, or both.

(For beginning photographers, this often means strategic cropping – something you can even do on a smart phone.) There is a good basic description at www.photographymad.com/pages/view/rule-of-thirdsContest rules: 1.

Contests run from the first to the last day of every month.2. Two entries are allowed per photographer, and should clearly demonstrate the “Technique of the Month”. A brief explanation of how the image demonstrates the technique may be included if desired.

Post your image in Medium 500 size.3. All images must meet the rules of the Black and White Group: **Absolutely no color or tints, even in watermarks or borders!! If in doubt, push the saturation slider in your editing program to zero.

**Borders and watermarks should be small and inconspicuous (or better yet, absent entirely). Entries may be disqualified if this rule is not followed.4. Recent or older pictures may be used, but must not have won or placed in a previous Black and White contest.

5. Voting will last for the first two weeks of the following month. All group members are encouraged to vote. If you entered an image, you must vote or you will not be eligible to win. You may not vote for your own entry.

Don’t worry if the numbering gets screwed up. Just do your best, and I will fix it before the contest goes to voting! Originally posted at 8:33AM, 1 April 2017 PDT (permalink) docoverachiever edited this topic 7 months ago.
