A New Look in an Old Style

11 May 2021 9:30AM   Views : 398 Unique : 214

The idea of mixing shooting colour with black and white never gelled with me. The thinking process of the two is different. So when I want to shoot black and white I set the camera to Monochrome JPEG capture, adjusting the parameters to suit my style as appropriate, rather than shooting colour and converting later. Thus I emulate the Kodak Tri-X experience that I used when I shot monochrome film. In this instance, I went to Arley Hall with the intent of shooting images that might have been shot 100 years ago, and to complete the effect I have toned them. The toning this time is more like Selenium than Sepia, but that is a matter of taste. The method is in Photoshop and I select Hue/Saturation, click the Colorise box and then use the sliders to adjust the colour of the toning. The Hue was set at 25, the saturation reduced until I had the Selenium tone and the Lightness adjusted to taste.

Here's a selction of the images:
