Awesome summation of the technique, Amanda! Black/White edits can be a very different style in both the processing and the initial capture of a scene. Although it can be used to drastically improve a photograph which may not be great in colour, it is also a great style of photography especially when you find the right image to convert into B/W, as explained. The depth of photography and post-processing is almost too great! Great post.

Thanks for your comment Sean 🙂


Great write-up Amanda and some wonderful tips that I will definitely try! I love black and white photographs and always think they are more artistic to look at (for some reason)…maybe to your point, about actually seeing the story of the picture more clearly. Your photographs are beautiful! I am also interested to know how you like the Nikon 80-400 mm lens as it is one that I’m considering purchasing?

Thanks so much for your comment and thank you for your kind words about the photographs. I absolutely love my 80-400mm lens as it is so versatile. It give you a huge amount of range. Coupled with a short 24mm prime f/1.4 lens for wide angle and stars, I really couldn’t want for another lens at the moment! I would recommend the 80-400 if you are on the fence.
