I need a distraction from all the pain that I am in. Since no amount of medications are helping, the doctors have recommended that I continue to keep blogging and doing art therapy with my photography. So today is an Ansel Adams inspired day.
Black and white photography has been a long time favorite tool of my own and many photographers to help viewers drive into the details of a dramatic photo.
Despite the heavy smoke hanging throughout the valley of Grand Teton National Park, I was able to grab a colorful shot in Mormon Row. I love how the planks are on fire with gold from the morning sun, but B&W allows viewers to focus in on the details of the weatherworn wood; details that can be overlooked when color is present.
In celebration of Ansel Adams and his impact upon B&W landscape photography, I am going to share a side by side showing the transformative power of B&W. This photo was shot using a DSLR, (Adobe Camera) Raw format, and developed as black and white image using Adobe Lightroom Classic or Lightroom for Mobile.
Feel free to let me know if you’d like any tips on how to take your day time shots to a dramatic, new level.
